Did you know that this month is National Women’s History Month? It’s an occasion to give some extra thought to the women in my life and recognize the challenges they face that I don’t, and once in a while, something happens that makes me realize I still have a long way to go.

If you think about February, you are likely to think about Groundhog Day. And if you think about Groundhog Day, you are going to think about Bill Murray’s iconic movie of the same title. Most of the time when Murray’s name crops up, it’s because of one of his comic movies, like “Scrooged,” “Ghostbusters,” “Groundhog Day,” “What About Bob,” or, one of our family favorites, “The Man Who Knew Too Much.” But I associate him with something else entirely: the Art Institute of Chicago.

Last year, I read an article in the Wall Street Journal that added to what I know about Martin Luther King Jr. Until then, I’d always thought of King as a civil rights hero, the man whose “I Have a Dream” speech and strides for equality on behalf of all races were legendary. That is still true. But the article revealed that King also had a darker side.

My youngest daughter, Elizabeth, is an accomplished baker, and cookies are her specialty. During her high school years, she would often lay claim to the kitchen to make snickerdoodles, peanut butter cookies, sugar cookies, and my favorite, classic chocolate chip cookies. Although she did not need an occasion, she particularly enjoyed making cookies for her friends on their birthdays. And she did not want anyone to erroneously conclude that she wasn’t their friend, so she churned out a lot of batches. I could count on there being something sweet in the house, and I was always happy to try her creations!

This year has gone by incredibly fast — it seems like only yesterday temperatures were hitting 90 degrees, and now Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I can’t say I’m upset about it, though, because I do really enjoy the holidays. This year for Turkey Day, Nancy and I are planning to stay home and try to get as many of our daughters to join us as we can. That gathering will be particularly nice because we’ve spent the last few months as empty nesters, and it’s been a bit odd to rattle around in a quiet house.

According to the folks at Lonely Planet, October is the best month of the year to visit our country’s national parks. Apparently it tops the list because of light crowds, temperate weather, beautiful fall foliage, and low-cost seasonal hotel rates. Personally, I think the national parks are worth a visit during any month you have spare time.

I like all of the seasons, but fall is by far my favorite. For me, it’s the cool weather that puts it over the top. The crisp September mornings give me more energy than the bone-chilling cold of January or the dry heat of July, and, after starting school in the fall for years, it’s the season that I associate with new beginnings.

Did you know that Aug. 1 is National Mountain Climbing Day? Though some people assume Nevada is all desert, we have no shortage of mountains here, and hearing about the holiday immediately reminded me of all of the memorable climbing outings I’ve had over the years. While many of those involved trekking real trails, others were — and still are — metaphorical uphill struggles. They’ve all been difficult, but I think every mountain I’ve faced has made me a stronger person and a better lawyer.

In most of the country, people look forward to July for the fireworks, barbecues, and pool parties that come with celebrating the Fourth. But in Reno, July is a special month for another reason: It signals the start of our beloved Artown arts festival.

Not many people are aware that every year on the second Saturday of June, the state of Nevada offers its residents a “Free Fishing Day.” This year on June 8, anglers can head out to any public fishing location without a fishing license or a trout stamp. In preparation for this upcoming event, I found myself recalling some of my own fishing experiences growing up.
