Not a thing lies hidden behind the bare branch –           the
days before emergent buds. Sycamores silver and white           golden
autumn cast to the ground. White limbs reaching to the sky, seeking,           silver
fingers thrusting out, pleading,     ...

TO SEE AND HEAR
Sarah and Ezekiel caught my eye this
Christmas season.  They were in two very different places.  But the
gift these little children gave me this season has stayed with me. I met Ezekiel at the grocery
store.  On a day when grocery store lines were running a...

A TWENTY IN MY POCKET
We couldn’t get on the road until well after dark. Years
ago, I would pack a Thermos of coffee and a few snacks.  Little towns had yet to see yellow arches. Gas

seats. Lift gate. Heated seats. Expansive windshield. Horses. Sunroof.   Nine years later, I still love driving it as much as
the first day. Reliability. Pedal to the metal. Could there be any new experience

DROP DAY
My husband thought he
heard a gunshot last night while watching t.v. He jumped up thinking it was

nicest compliments one can receive ...

SQUIRREL ON A WIRE
I love fall! My newest habit is a result of cooler weather.  But a warm front came along, throwing the digits back into the miserable eighties.  Really?  At the end of October.  But that is just October.  My favorite month.  Apple pie.  Football.  State Fai...

THREE SCOOPS
I am the person who can drink hot coffee in the summer and iced coffee in the winter. But last night I drank two cups of coffee about 7:30 p.m. Maybe that's why I tossed and turned. Still, I can hardly resist a perfect cup of caffeinated. Not decaf. Once up...
