We Need a Hero…

As I think about my life, I’m ever grateful for the hero in the story. When I was young, I watched The Adventures of Letterman on television. He was a cartoon, but he saved the day nonetheless! Faster than a rolling 'O' Stronger than silent 'E' Able to leap capital 'T' in a single bound! …

Memories at the Bus Stop

I've been MIA for a bit, and I'm sad that's the case. Since I'm participating in NaNoWriMo this year, I thought I'd be a little more consistent with posts. (We'll see how that shakes out in reality, but it's a nice idea.) Here's a little memory I was thinking about this week. I wonder how …

Paradigm: the Shift

Worldview. It's how I see, read, and understand my world. It's the lenses I look through, and like most people, I don't realize I'm wearing them.

Wet-combed, thin hair lay flat in the morning, but the shorter hairs on top rebelled as the day went on. Every memory is filled with …

A Tree in a Forest…

"If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, did it make a sound?" If an author crafted thoughtful paragraphs and no one's eyes found the web page to take them in... The writer's creativity flows directly from the heart. Many of us hold a fragile heart gently in …

Water, Water, Everywhere…

As I reflect on my life, I’m sensitive to something I’ve glossed over more recently. As I explore it, bear with me. Maybe we’ll discover something unique and useful as we go. I was thinking about water—different kinds of water. Water can be completely still in stagnant puddles. It can be strong and forceful in  …
