The words came across his desk through tears laced with deep compassion. “It will get better.” My resigned response was simple. “I hope so.” I had used those words a thousand times in darker moments of life when pain was the order of the day. It had served as my expression of inner weariness and psychic exhaustion. A sort of […]

A Different Kind of New Year

It was a blur. I heard rumors it happened, but have only a hazy recall.     Yep, missed it completely. And no, it wasn’t too much celebratory Champaign. We were moving into our new home and throughout both Christmas and New Years when everyone else was partying we were packing and unpacking. Cardboard boxes replaced […]

It’s all relative, isn’t it? Lots of fish seem big in a small pond. But you can can become a moderate phenom if you learn to use the site well. My son-in-law, Chase, introduced this old […]

Bookends

Eagles. Dad was obsessed with them. He peppered beautiful statues of them in his office and around our home for as long as I can remember. A few of them live at my place since he passed away. One is a set of bronze bookends. In an age where our libraries are digital bytes we read […]
