If we are given only two alternatives, there is no real choice; We must have at least three choices to have a real choice.

—Eugene R. "Woody" Widrick, Minister Emeritus, First Religious Society in Carlisle, MA (b. 1932)

A number of regular readers have asked me why Reflection for the Day has been missing from the newspaper on some recent days. For the first time in the 31 years since legendary Boston Globe editor Thomas Winship launched the feature, the newspaper will publish it only sporadically through the remainder of 2015, This website will continue to publish the Reflections on its regular schedule through the end of the year and into 2016. I will let readers know if and when the Globe’s editors decide to resume regular print publication.
