Home sweet home…



Basel, Switzerland

I was delighted to have the chance to spend the past few days back in my childhood haunts, in and around Basel. It’s been a few years since I’ve been back, and I’d forgotten how much I miss the place (with its unique sights, sounds, and smells)… roasted chestnuts, mulled wine, tasteful shop-window displays, friendly families out on the town… brought back many happy memories. I was also able to cram in quick visits to Lörrach (where I also lived for a half dozen years), to my brother Phil’s (he and his spirited family live in Binzen, just down the road from the Vitra Design Museum [Frank Gehry’s first structure in Europe]), and to Black Forest Academy, the school I attended for many years. Ah, sweet yesteryear…
