Some Thoughts Before I Write Forward

I have to admit it, there are times when I do not know if I am the right person to write as an expert on this subject, but this is only because I am not a master, I do not have all the answers, I only have experiences.  Yet then, as I think about it, … Continue reading Some Thoughts Before I Write Forward


Postcard #25: The Deer and I

The woods at home here are very much alive and adventure is always singing.  You would have skipped along with me into the other worlds next door last Friday... The best magic started when I spotted a lovely buck and followed him into a grove beyond the trail.  It was the best time of year … Continue reading Postcard #25: The Deer and I

Postcard #23: Bad Egg?

My cracks glue back together whenever someone else's cruel remarks are overpowered whenever I remember the kindness and thoughtfulness of you. I have something to confess this week. No matter how bright I … Continue reading Postcard #23: Bad Egg?

Postcard #22: Familiar Spirits

I am short on words, full on thoughts. My hours are spent with the cat I call my companion. He is the familiar spirit at my side, or is it the other way around? If you ask him, he'd say I'm the familiar spirit, that he has me as the guide. Let us share with … Continue reading Postcard #22: Familiar Spirits
