It Takes A Family

Where It All Began

My Parents

Here’s to our father Joseph, a physician who loved the poet Ogden Nash. He used to write clever poems to our mother Edith, a psychologist, who always replied in verse. Five siblings discovered early on that you could tell anybody anything – even our parents – as long as you did it with a poem.¬†Every occasion became an exuberant poetic roast, a tradition that continues today.
