It was a Tuesday night like so many before. Late, around 9:00 pm; I was driving down the highway from the city back to our little town. I had just finished grocery shopping. It was the evening of the February full moon, the night it reached its peak fullness, and as I glanced out of… Continue reading Apocolypse Now?
Driving home in the dark I see the movement of cows in the field near the road I’m on. They are trotting, if that’s what cows do, heading somewhere as a herd. The high beam light from my car bounces off their eyes making the scene eerie. I smile and feel a sense of the… Continue reading Freedom In The Night

Everything looks like a Norman Rockwell painting covered in the recent snow. I almost cannot bear the charm when I see children sledding down a pasture hill dotted with black… Continue reading Living In America
We had a real snow today. Big, fast moving flakes coating everything in white. A beautiful snow that gives you keen awareness of the enchanted fairy tale this world is. While I was bopping up and down, working up a sweat with my life coach Richard Simmons, I stared out the window at this beauty… Continue reading A Real Snow
