The Wren

I haven’t written in a very long while.  Life sometimes gets in the way and often those things that we love have to be relegated to back burners.  Such is my story. But, mine is also a story of getting back up and finding my way back to the things that make me happy and… Read More The Wren

An April Fool

I’ve never really thought of myself as gullible.  In fact, I’m one who over-analyzes, questions everything, and NEVER shoots from the hip with a knee-jerk reaction.  If something is questionable, I sense it more than know it and that kick starts the whole “think-everything-to-death” process.  That, in turn, means that I am rarely surprised or… Read More An April Fool

  Call me a nerd – a geek – a throwback to weirdness.  Whatever…  I LOVE the old horror flicks and never more so than around Halloween.  Now, the word horror is pure conjecture where the classics are concerned as there is very little to be horrified by.  In fact, hilarity may be a better… Read More My Top 10 Favorite “Spooky” Halloween Movies

Autumn Senses

    Of all the seasons nature brings, my soul is drawn to one. I feel my senses spring to life as Summer comes undone.     My eyes behold a palette bold of trees in gold and red that burst with joy for one last song on leaves as yet unshed.   Color is… Read More Autumn Senses

The Labor Day Incident

Its been a year now and I’m ready to tell the story.  It’s rather lengthy, much like these past months, so pull up a stump and I’ll tell you a tale… Labor Day Weekend – nothing grand or exciting in our home.  We sometimes plan a cookout or a backyard bonfire, but mostly its been… Read More The Labor Day Incident
