This journey we’re on
Looking at the many intersections in life and questions we face along the way.
Life, faith, stuff
LIFE. Each of our lives is a hero’s journey. We may not feel like it a lot of the time. Sometimes we forget what the quest is about. But we’re here, on Earth, on this journey.
FAITH. We are born with a hole — something missing. Then we spend much of our lives trying to fill that hole. Faith is essential in that process. Faith is the stepping out of where I know I am to place confidence in something I haven’t seen or tested yet. If we didn’t have faith, we’d never take risks.
STUFF. On life’s journey, we carry around stuff. Some of it is helpful, some of it holds us back. Some of it we hang on to because we don’t know how to put it aside.
THE INTERSECTIONS OF LIFE. The forks in the road where things get interesting and choices are made. Mostly small choices. Seemingly inconsequential. Until we one day realize that together all those little choices formed the fabric and pattern of our lives. Then we see that they made all the difference. It is here we see what we are made of or yet capable of becoming.

There’s no place like home
Home. We live there. Leave and come back. But what does ‘home’ really mean? And what makes something or someplace ‘home’?
Morning sickness and the Coronavirus
When there’s a problem in life, we want to find a solution. That’s natural. Part of what makes us human.
The quicker, the better. But what if there’s a price…
Potter is not selling — he’s buying
The Bailey Building & Loan. Crammed with investors who want their money. Now. Because it’s a run on the bank. George Bailey trying to calm them down.
What does that have to do with the Coronavirus?
I write a journal — I admit it
Science tells us that we remember things better when we write them down. In that sense, journaling helps anchor the events of the day in our minds.
Summer, summer, summer
Summer: Warmer temperatures, longer days, seagulls crying, the smell of wood tar, watermelon, barbecue. Canoe camping by water’s edge with a little night fishing. reading on the deck and so much more …
