The lesson of loss

Loss. The emptiness. The place where someone stood or sat is vacant. The call. The voice. The shared histories and moments of joy and sadness. Relationships are all part of the stories of a life. As I work my way through these losses I keep thinking how fragile and precious each moment is. How we […]

Those who make it better

Over the last year, I lost two dear friends. One by illness and one through a tragic accident. As I reflect on both friends, I think about what made them special. They were both comfortable in their own skin. They loved to help. They wanted to hear all the news from their friends. With the […]

A friend throughout time

You just never know. You start the day making right turns and then a left turn finds its way in and everything changes. As I write in Hour of the Wolf, life is a constant flipping coin. You make decisions, make choices but everyone else is doing that too. Or a half a inch here […]

The tender moment

I rode the Scrambler down Route 66. Made my way from small town to small town just taking in the ride and the day. You see and hear things that others miss when you wander aimlessly through America. Nothing fancy. Nothing earth shaking. Just life. Moments in time. People trying to connect and have a […]

They are fearless. They see the world as only possibilities. They want to learn. Try. Seek. Do. Whether learning to […]

Friendship in the day

Today. It seems to get a bad rap. We so often talk about what happened yesterday. We let it linger with us. Fret over it. Let yesterday live on when we need to let it go. We dream about tomorrow.  Yet, it is today that is real. It is this moment, this day, that calls out […]

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 […]
