Convenient with Thanksgiving this week – not so convenient that I have a weigh-in Monday morning! I foresee a conversation with my Doctor involving the words; nutritionist, &hellip Continue reading »

the townspeople gathered

Ahhhhh tradition……there’s nothing like it as a town gathers to celebrate another opening day of deer hunting. The smell of cigarettes and carnage hang in the crisp night air – bodies pressed up against each other as you try to maneuver your way through the crowd, all the while trying not to find yourself pressed up against the gutted &hellip Continue reading »

the daily commute – 11.09.11

My mother has a way of seeing the beauty in the environment on the grayest of days and in the most dismal of months - I used to see a field of grasses on a damp November morning and think -uck- nothing about this day is salvageable or even remotely worth a second glance, but now I’m seeing things &hellip Continue reading »
