Joni HoffmanSeptember is a good month. On the fourth, my mom turns 91. During our nightly chats, in the pre-coronavirus era, I often would rush her off the phone. But lately, I have taken the time to really listen. I’m hearing stories for the first time. Or it is quite possible, at my own age, that I have heard them and forgotten. Regardless, my mom is a great storyteller, and I’m a sucker for a good story. I am lucky that finding and hearing stories is my job every day at The Buzz. We are fortunate to have the trust of our neighbors, who in turn trust our writers to bring their memories and experiences to life. We have some more good ones this month, including a Netflix star who lives in the neighborhood, the love story and quarantine wedding of a couple who met at the Astros’ World Series parade, and the 97-year-old author of I Don’t Remember Getting Old. I love my job. [email protected]
