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 […]

Yes Fear

Yes Fear

I know it is ‘No’. No Fear. The slogan is plastered everywhere, particularly on the rear window of large pickup trucks. It makes me wonder why the drivers of said trucks need a reminder and what fear it is they are driving against, but that’s another blog for another day. Those who have heard my […]

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 […]

As We Journey

As We Journey

At this rate we’ll be in 2017 in just over a week and in the meantime, just think of all the places we will go! Planes, trains, automobiles, camels and mopeds, by foot and by boat, all over the world mankind is on the move. I wonder what surprises each will find upon their arrival? […]

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 […]

Days Of New Wine and Roses

Days Of New Wine and Roses

    Roses. Red Roses. Red Roses in Rome. Red Roses in Rome falling from the opening in the top of the magnificent, ancient Pantheon, that which was originally built by Marc Antony and Cleopatra to celebrate and honor the many gods of Rome. Talk about romantic. Love is in the air, the very atmosphere […]

CommuniTea

CommuniTea

  There’s a theme, a rhythm, a cadence that is shouting to make itself heard right now, and while its expressions are unique in various locations and among people of varied background and circumstance, the cry is the same: community! In a day of untold numbers of travellers and refugees there is a cry arising […]

What If ?

What If ?

  Two little words that pack a powerful punch. At times the punch keeps us awake at night. Sometimes it wearies our minds until we find ourselves tired and afraid. What if what goes around stops instead of comes around? /when-what-goes-around-stops/ ‎ Little words can pack a wallop! Take the word ‘to’. Putting this word where it […]

A Sign Of The Times

A Sign Of The Times

  Sometimes you just have to laugh. And stop – rivet – to find where the Lord is leading – pivot. It is time to see generations and nations healed and set free. This Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Sixteen has sure started off with a bang, and I don’t mean fireworks. Friends have broken wrists […]
