Singing In The Rain

Singing In The Rain

Dear Friends,  This coming Wednesday Jim and I lead a pilgrimage to Ireland and Iona, retracing the steps of Columba who lived in the 500’s. I have finally given in and joined the world of Instagram and hope to post there, so if you’re an Insta-grammer that’s where you may follow along. I’d love to […]

Lost And Found

Lost And Found

  There is one requirement to being found: someone must be looking. Yes it is true that one can be found unexpectedly or by surprise, though discovery by chance is most common when considering objects: one can find a lost set of keys or find their destination by happening to take the right turn. When […]

At The End Of The Day

At The End Of The Day

  “One must wait till evening to see how lovely the day has been.” It is 6:30 in the morning Pacific Time and I’ve just had an evening moment. Funny, isn’t it, how one innocent little movement can unexpectedly stir one’s soul into awakeness and awareness. This morning it was the pool skimmer that did […]

A Curious Find In An Unexpected Place

A Curious Find In An Unexpected Place

  Though we now live in the mountains we don’t get out much. That is, we haven’t done much in the actual mountains since moving here as winter came and had a hard time leaving. It was a fine winter as winters go, but it didn’t do much for my longing to walk on a […]

When I Am Me

When I Am Me

  Perhaps the only thing better than heading out is heading home. Born an adventurer, heading out is in my veins. Born to be a mom, heading home is a dream. One that sometimes comes true. Those who know a bit of my story know I began to love Ireland, the UK and Europe early […]

When Everything Goes Right

When Everything Goes Right

  It was one of those dreams that was so intense I needed it to end. Sometimes you can wake yourself up from a dream and sometimes you can’t. I was able to pull out of this one but not soon enough! In this dream I was on trial and it wasn’t pretty. The sense […]

Rahab’s Mighty Little Faith

Rahab's Mighty Little Faith

Moses, the great and fearless leader of old.  Can you imagine having as much faith as Moses? He was a great leader, but at the moment of destiny he was not fearless. In fact he was so intimidated he got permission from God for his brother Aaron to do the talking while he did the miracles. Have you ever […]

It’s The Little Things That Count

It's The Little Things That Count

  It isn’t the chair in the living room we tend to trip over. It’s the pair of slippers randomly kicked off and left where we didn’t expect. And in so much of life it isn’t the big things that trip us up, it is the little things that count. How many times we only have […]

Measuring Up

Measuring Up

I won! The competition was intense and having traveled a long way, I knew focus and concentration were required despite my travel fatigue. Looking around the room I took quick stock of those who had gathered and realized the odds were stacked against me as I was one of the oldest in the room This […]

The Glass of The Sea of Glass

The Glass of The Sea of Glass

  I have a fascination with sea glass. Once, sea glass was formed by broken pieces of glass floats from Japanese fishing nets. Now sea glass found on the beach is mostly broken alcohol and soda bottles. Sometimes the glass comes from shipwrecks or tableware or even windshields that ended up in the sea. The […]
