Making a Difference During this Fragmented Existence

Like everyone, I am over this virus business and want so much to move along, but I fear, in the U.S., we may be at the start of what is not a sprint, but a marathon. Because writing helps me process life and keep a level head, I once again find myself sharing words that …

Two Transpiring Paradigms

Tried hard, I did, to push these thoughts aside. I started writing a humorous story about a runaway van, that was sure to get at least one laugh, but the grocery lines are long and the lines that follow this paragraph kept interrupting my funny story with their demands.

Love Can Scatter the Clouds

The veil that blew away in the autumn wind is blowing toward me again. Just rest, close your eyes, sleep –   it is there you will find some peace, the floating shroud whispers its appeal.

I am the explosion of color before the setting sun disappears. I am the final display of magnificence before twilight descends. My color-splashed canvas is brief – a transitory existence. One of a kind golden photos that are easily missed. I am an ever changing portrait that continues to unfold – beautiful and breathtaking, I …

A holiday inspired poem is what I set out to write and sarcastic wit is what transpired. The final product, as you will see, is designed in the shape of a tree. Christmas Spirit highlighted down the left side - a feeling I hope this post helps to provide. This photo was taken in Bisbee, …

Discovering the Great in the Outdoors

Our favorite recreational activity is spending time in the great outdoors. Finally reaching a sweet spot, we are now primed to head out and explore.

Nonstop Rain, the Mighty Rogue River, and a Swimming Bald Eagle

Relentless rain transformed the park near my home into a lake. I haven’t left my city all week and yet I feel as though I have been transported to another location, as I have watched the dry Sonoran Desert turn into an expansive wet landscape. A magical transformation, that has also been treacherous for many, …
