For when you are crawling
I keep staring at it. The photo of the woman crawling to finish a marathon. Something wells up inside of me from somewhere deep, for I relate to that image on a soul level. The crawling part of course, not so much the running a marathon bit.  I had all thes...

When you wake up with a heavy heart
I don't even know where to start. Ray's face swims in my sleepy morning vision and I wonder if I was just dreaming about him. What did you expect? (The nasty Court voice snarls...) He had grey... No almost white... Hair?! But here is another way to look at ...

Scattered hay
The smell of hay greets me each time I push open our back door. A scattered pile is sitting by the door. The hay had been for Kaiya's bunny which has relocated itself from the cage lined with hay to living underneath the porch. This drives our dog completel...

Gold bits
When I was little, I was bouncing on my big sister's bed, with my twin brother. Little flecks of dust were floating down, caught on fire by sunlight which made them look like bits of gold. My brother started trying to eat them. Because he's a boy and that's...

Through it
The boy who was burned sits tuning his guitar, his foot and ankle wrapped up in a bandage. He tunes. The pain, I just can't even imagine. I tap a portion of a fingertip on a hot pan and it seems to much. A whole leg- I just can't even. But there he sits, tu...

Half of you
'I am turning 70!' You squeal in delight, with a clap of the hand. My mind immediately calculates my meager 35 and that it is exactly half of that. Naturally I comment. It's what I do, being the eternal 'baby' but what was most interesting was your response...

I just can't get it together
All year long I've been saying that I'm doing good to leave the house wearing pants. Suddenly it's mid November and everyone has lost their mind in rolling out Christmas two weeks early and this sets off a panic attack. I stagger to church like an unkempt z...

How to die well
It starts in a flurry, this sudden plan to go see my 90-year-old ailing grandmother. Some friends had asked if they could take our kids with them on their family vacation. Since that meant being without children for ten days we thought about our response fo...
