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 […]

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

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 […]

Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Ah, those colorful doors of Ireland! Whether you’ve been to the fair island or not you’ve seen them in photos, door after cheery door painted bright blue, red, yellow or green. On a fine soft day, a day of lashing rain or in the clear, bright sunshine, these doors evoke a smile. Inviting, yes. Whimsical, […]

Tending Mustard

Tending Mustard

  Have you made it big, yet? Had a big idea? The bigger the better, so they say. BIG seems to be the ideal, the goal, the sign of success. And yet very many little things have filled my life these first months of 2017. Keeping track of little things requires a lot of work, […]

Cast Away!

Cast Away!

To tell you I know nothing about fly fishing is to greatly exaggerate my knowledge of the sport. In fact the only time it has touched my life happened two years ago when my brother David and his wife visited us in Redding. Known for its superb fly fishing, the Sacramento River lured he and […]

It’s All Downhill From Here

It's All Downhill From Here

  A funny looking little scotch pine tree is growing in front of me. Literally. As I sit in my new office in my new home in Colorado, I see a scotch pine directly outside the window in front of me. From the look of it, the wind blows hard and the winters take a […]

Hairpin Turn Navigation. A Primer.
