Cold wind blows

I stand at the beach as brisk cold winds blow seaweed, branches and sea foam about. The water churns and white-capped waves hit the shoreline. I am nearly blown off balance and hold tight to my cap. At once, I must firmly stand on both feet and am drawn to the assurance that comes from…

How great

The weight of it all

I have been burdened today. Weighed down and so concerned about many things, cycling through the sadness, frustration and unknowns. It got to a point where I needed to press pause on the worrying, and so I began to journal about all of it. With transparency and speed, a list of cares came out of…

Say it in writing

When was the last time you received a card or an actual hand-written letter? When was the last time you sent a card or letter? When President George HW Bush passed away, there were many tributes and interviews shown on TV. One particular one I saw was about his fondness and commitment to letter writing….
