Rewarding Routine: I cherish the hours, especially on Saturday mornings, that I spend running errands in my Larchmont Boulevard neighborhood. I get my car washed, go to the laundry, go to the bank, go to the barber shop, get my shoes shined, go to the photo store. I enjoy these things because I know people at each one of these places. It's an opportunity to just hang out and talk.
