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 sit in the breezeway soaking up solitude like the cats soak up the sun. It’s been a whirlwind. First dealing with […]

Having Enough

Many times it’s not a matter of not having enough, but using the “enough” you already have efficiently. This goes for things such as time and energy, as well as money and material resources. It’s like having a file cabinet with research notes, descriptions of characters, lines for lyrics, drafts of projects, and creative ideas, […]

The photo in the new banner for this blog is a graphic enhanced version of my grandson held in my arms, taken two years ago. I have gotten a lot of positive feedback concerning that photo, that it’s pretty much become my logo. Somehow the nurturing image of a woman holding a baby seems fitting […]

Why Am I Here?
