Drive By Photography

Basking in the warm fuzziness known as the Bear Hunt, Kurt and I got an idea. Why not make our own lemonade? Of course, I’m not talking about that citrusy sweet beverage most coveted in the blazing heat of an Arkansas summer, but what if, just what if, we offered an opportunity to forget about … More Drive By Photography

2020

The multitude of changes that transpired in 2020 seemed to quell any inspiration to writing. Navigating Covid restrictions in a business that’s all about human contact, seeking truth in a political environment that’s hell bent on creating division, moving to and renovating a 90 year old stucco, and adjusting to “urban dwelling” (I know, I … More 2020

On Joy

He showed me a little thing, the size of a hazelnut in the palm of my hand.I thought, “What might this be?” and was answered,“It is the whole of creation.”I wondered how it might last, and I was answered in my understanding.“It lasts and shall ever last because God loves it.” -Blessed Julian of Norwich

Let’s face it, I … More On Moving

Pets

There are some constants in this upside down state of being known as 2020.  Perhaps some of the most vital fall into the pet category. In fact, in spite of plummeting sales in many sectors, the percentage of pet adoptions has actually increased since the onset of the Stay at Home Orders that many of … More Pets

It’s hard these days to even consider the possibility of harnessing good luck, due to the fact that life, as we know it, has drastically changed. Comings and goings are clouded with an air of caution; tension, a familiar, yet unwelcome guest, pervades.   Because I have been given the wherewithal to prevail when faced with … More Luck

Hope

I’m a sucker for trees. Big trees, small trees, evergreens, deciduous, it doesn’t matter.  I am an equal opportunity tree hugger.   My miniscule front yard boasts an old Southern Magnolia, a redbud and a ginormous crepe myrtle, the trifecta of hardy blooms greeting my gaze towards the heavens.  It’s absolutely delightful. Although there’s not too … More Hope
