In that Space.

I don’t feel the need to persuade anyone into believing in a higher power.  That’s not my responsibility. Attempting to talk others into having faith beyond that which greets our naked eye each day here on earth is too heavy a weight for any human to bear. Many years ago, I discovered that an innate … More In that Space.

Me, My Ego & Social Media.

So, what makes any of us feel a desire to take bits and pieces of our day and offer it up to the world at large?  Better yet, why didn’t I feel compelled to share a photo of our clogged toilet last week?  Why don’t I pop into the girl’s bedrooms and snap a pic of the 10-mile-high mountain of dirty laundry in their closets?  Why do I only tend to share the goodness, the pretty, the accomplishments? … More Me, My Ego & Social Media.

It’s fine. It happens. I’ve toted this icky feeling around with me all day long.  Now, I’ve tucked this … More Built to Last.

We Need a Revolution.

I woke up early and went about my morning routine.  Brought the kettle to a whistle and poured the piping hot water over my coffee grounds.  Headed out to the coops and unleashed the feathered friends for a day of free range bliss among the fall foliage, sunrise peeking through the trees, dappled light glistens … More We Need a Revolution.
