Charlie and I went out to lunch. Around here we call it a Dairy Bar or a Drive in. You know, one of those places where you order at a window and they call your name when it’s ready? Foot long hot dogs, fried seafood, ice cream, that type of…


I started walking every morning. I try to walk about four miles. Two miles out, turn around, and then two miles back. Sometimes I stroll and look all around. Sometimes I start out power walking and then relax into a stroll. Either way, the last mile is heaven. It’s as…


I went for a walk in the woods this morning, on my favorite trail that runs alongside a brook. A gift of these last few years has been discovering the trails right in my back yard and being able to enjoy them during all times of the year. As I…


A friend was telling me how she had gone outside her home late the night before just to take in some nature right in her backyard. It made me think about how I always forget to go outside. I get caught up in my head and my to-do’s and fall…

I think a lot about healing and change and growth. And I think a lot about these last eight or so years that I’ve been shifting my inner and outer world. I will NEVER forget what my daily internal life was like back then. Some words that come to mind…


Driving down our street right now is like being in an old school video game. It’s the squirrels. I’m not sure why they are so active this time of year, but man, they will dart right out in front of you so quickly. They run out to the middle of…
