Touching the void

We were so young when we moved into this house. 32 years ago. I remember when we first moved in. The house was abandoned and lonely. It was dark and so desparately needing in light. And we arrived. We walked in and decided to save the house. Slowly we started. Stripping the old wallpaper off […]

The way we still are

We sat having our semi regular lunch.  Aren’t good friendships the best.  Easy. Simple.Relaxed. Open. Supporting. Fun.  Honest. Respectful and caring. After lunch we strolled over for our Starbucks drink. We sat and the conversation made its way to the great song…The Way We Were. The way we were. Well it got me thinking about […]

A place beyond time

The twelfth of never. A place outside of or beyond or unrelated to time. It is a great song. For some reason I was and still am drawn to it. Simple. Beautiful.  Haunting. What is meaningful to you. What does unconditional devotion look and feel like.  It is a feeling beyond time and space. It […]

A bubble popped

Bubbles. They are everywhere. It seems like everyone travels in their own bubble. Some times groups travel in together bubbles. You might think that together bubbles are a good thing but it just appears to reinforce a bubble agenda. A  type of isolation. Bubbles seem like it is a safe place but I just don’t […]

An imperfect lunch

We sat across from each other at the restaurant. It was a long way from the lunch counter we used to sit at in the early years.  Today it was at a swanky spot with all the bells and whistles that swanky spots are known for. Yet within a few minutes we were just those […]

Route 66 and the back roads

A community of the ageless

Why? Why a community of ageless experiments. Why commit to being part of living outside of what is expected of you to do and living outside of other’s definitions of how you are supposed to behave. It just seems that with all the technology and fancy devises we are more disconnected then ever. Isolation is […]

The red jeep and a mountain range

It  was right out of a Rockwell painting. The red jeep was parked at  the ledge of a turnout by the ridge overlooking Estes Park. The snow was on the mountain peaks. The clouds were rolling in for the late afternoon rains.  We stood in front of the jeep and just stared. What does simplicity […]

4 am, an airport drive and weaving

I heard them from upstairs. One learning how to weave and her older sister reading the instructions and helping her figure this new project out. They sounded like they were back in Elmont , after school, trying to figure out a math problem in some high school home work assignment. It was timeless. The chatter […]

Good friends and sunshine

There is something so comforting about good friends. Time and space fade away when you join together. As we walked the little town of Niwot, you reconnect and share hopes and wishes. You know that you are safe and just want the best for each other. The laughs are hardy. The history is deep. There […]
