Books and reading are gifts we give ourselves. If we allow ourselves to open our imaginations, books provide us the opportunity to learn and grow. I’m grateful for that first Dr. Seuss book so many years ago. Pick up a book. You might be pleasantly surprised.

  • Wishful thinking in an ugly world
    Thursday, November 9, 2017 9:37 AM
    We put our Christian faith on full display, while turning our noses up at the poor and less fortunate. We talk about turning the other cheek, yet try to demolish another at the first slight. We recite the Golden Rule, yet look the other way when our leaders treat and talk to/about others as if they were dirt. I still have a glimmer of wishful thinking about us humans. I hope it proves to be accurate at some point.

  • Ever have one of those days?

    Have you ever had one of those days? Where every day was a Monday? Where you think you should go back to bed and start over?

  • Beware all fake news out there

    More than ever before I’m counting on the First Amendment to prevail against the frontal assaults it faces today.

  • None of us can escape getting older
    Sunday, October 15, 2017 4:12 AM
    Aging happens. I get that. I’m half a step slower. I pause for a moment, after I stand up to make sure I’m steady. I’m more conscious of foods that sit/don’t sit well. It takes a moment longer to flip through the mental rolodex. Aging also brings clarity. Aging can give us the freedom to be less rigid, less frightened. We have a history to draw upon to shine the light on the value of experience.

  • Community forum in search of civility

    If we can find civility again, we may be able to find solutions to the worlds’ biggest challenges. Maybe we can live in some harmony with each other again. Maybe we can find our best selves again.

  • Elk herd brings back memories
    Sunday, October 1, 2017 12:05 PM
    As the dark sky started to lighten, I could see more and more elk. I felt surrounded in the canyon and meadow with wildlife and beauty all around. The bugling intensified. It was like nothing I remember experiencing quite this way before. During the season of the elk, I am privileged to hear the yearly mating call. But on this day, it’s different.

  • Aftermath of hurricane a long road
    Sunday, September 24, 2017 12:34 PM
    Natural disasters don’t follow a political or social ideology. It’s only us crazy humans who waste our time and energy doing that. But, in the midst of a disaster for which there really is no control, we do see the worst and best among us. It’s heartwarming to focus on the best among us. It’s a reminder of what we can and should be.

  • Longtime friends take a road trip
    Monday, September 11, 2017 6:49 AM
    When we are on a cruise, a road trip, at a wedding reception, the beach or a five-star restaurant, our unlikely pairing becomes the event that perfect strangers seem to want to join and participate in the laughter and the mischief-making. We haven’t figured out how that happens, but long ago we learned to go with it.

  • We need to learn from the past
    Sunday, August 27, 2017 9:13 AM
    We can’t help ourselves. Human frailty seems to keep the inherent battles going, even when we know better. We can’t seem to get out of our own way. Some may think history isn’t relevant, but it's amazing how often we repeat it.
