We had snow this morning, big, fat, juicy flakes that dropped and clung to every surface, piling up, settling as mounds of fluffy white. As I gaze out the window upon a winter wonderland, I inhale the beauty - because the rain is on the way, and the unsullied covering blanketing all imperfections will soon be gone. As young… Continue reading The Light We Don’t Have to Lose
There are times in life when you just have to uncurl your unyielding, icy fingers and let things drop from the death grip with which you are clutching them, especially old traditions that have simply become inflexible customs. The after effects can be surprisingly refreshing, as I was able to experience over the past Thanksgiving… Continue reading Oh Christmas Tree, What Do I See?
I believe this week might be the perfect time to share a tale of a ghostly encounter! I mentioned something in a previous post about how my mom has always liked to be a little mischievous and give us a good scare from time to time. She was no respecter of persons either. She has gotten all… Continue reading Visions of Unearthly Chaos
Yes, I will admit it, I'm a "Dancing With the Stars" fan. Although, I am sort of like the one judge who doesn't care for all the excessive props and theatrics. He and I both say, "Just dance!" I don't overly care for the more modern dances that have been lumped in with traditional ballroom. I… Continue reading Look Above the Voice
My heart is breaking for those folks in North Carolina and South Carolina from the weather events of this past week. I have family that decided to ride out hurricane Florence in the Wilmington area, and they are, thankfully, safe.

My how the years did zoom right on by! We said it would be great if our graduating class… Continue reading 40 Went By in the Blink of an Eye!
It had to be done. My fear of "crawly things" had to be put to the side and I had to suck it up and do it! It was the pool again. The water had gotten so low that, if we didn't get some water back in, it was going to start running the pump… Continue reading I Didn’t See a Thing!
All week I was thinking this was my number "fifty" blog post and was planning to celebrate and talk about just various vision topics -- since the underlying theme for my blog is vision-related. But, apparently I miscalculated and my major milestone was last week and I missed it. So, belated "Happy Fiftieth Blog" to me! I still… Continue reading Vision
As the last sultry days of summer loom, and I am headed toward my fortieth year high school class reunion in the next few weeks, I can't help but reminisce about those last summers toward the end of high school and the beginning of the real world. I think, if you are lucky, everyone has at… Continue reading The Red Truck is Just Out of Sight
