A Piece of Sky

A Piece of Sky

It’s been three years since I made the announcement I was archiving this blog. I closed it to launch my namesake blog as part of a marketing plan. But shifting from focusing on an action — keeping the dream, to focusing on a person — Demian Yumei, didn’t work for me. I thought, at first, […]

When It’s Darkest

When It’s Darkest

Written by on June 19, 2015 in Tea and Conversation with 2 Comments

When it’s the darkest is when we need to shine the brightest, each in our own way. Don’t underestimate the importance of each sun ray, of every moonbeam. We have no idea just who we will touch, what it will mean to them… or to us. Whether falling full faced onto a well tended garden […]

How Do You Walk?

Written by on August 10, 2014 in Tea and Conversation with 0 Comments

Quiet morning, distant call of a lone bird, a pause…and then an answer. Low, almost imperceptible trill of insects hidden somewhere within the green, the staccato of a dog bark punctuating the silence.

I wake up and step outside. It’s a beautiful morning. The air is crisp like Fall, and a smile immediately comes to my face. It’s almost May. I know many people can’t wait for the warmer weather to get here. A week or so ago, the temperature hit in the 80’s. They were ecstatic. I […]

Under weeds…

…there is a garden. Really. Pulling back long runners of wild greenery, I find a garden, or at least a piece of one – variegated leaves of contrasting green planted as a part of someone’s vision of their home. Could have been my Kenny. I can see him hastily digging a hole and planting his […]

This is an article written by Andrew Vachss, an attorney who only respresents children, published in Parade Magazine, August 28, 1994. He is probably one of the strongest voices for children. His writings are impeccable, straight to the point, and powerful. There isn’t much to add, but to say read “You Carry the Cure in […]
