Advent ‘22 Hope

Please, please “give a hoot.” The gifts of the season are not always the prettiest or most convenient…

Preparations, Budgets and Seasonal Joy Part 1

Give yourself all those wild holiday preparations….

When I read…

When I read, at home in the woods…

Act.Plan.Dream. (Today, in no particular order).

The concept of rest, I think, is the mental jump in the kaleidoscope of fallen leaves..

Fish Memories (I went fishing, part 2)

A fin. I saw a fin. I pulled and reeled. “Just keep doing what you are doing.” I had no idea what I was doing…

I went fishing…

Up ahead lie my lake of ghosts and memories. “Papa,” I whispered into the lake’s breeze.

Retracing my Pentagram.

And my foot stepped to the end of the point, my toe reached behind to swivel back…

Self-Judgment.

I saw from myself, after waves of the past and all of the new roads ahead, a smile windowed from my soul…

Awaken the Story

In the midst of the troublesome world and a whole negative list of my own, at fifty-seven I am romanticizing my own corner of the world. As I awaken, I realize I have created a storybook life. Throughout all the ups and downs, here was my life.

Answering Life.

I will stumble with this newly, deliberately placed quality in my fifty-seven year old life. And while nothing makes me tick more than questions, I have found the gift of one answered life question.
