Beautiful Place to Call Home


I love where I live.  I love that this is what I run by in the morning, and drive by at night.

It is a good life.

Trash

Happy 38th Birthday to Me!  I can't actually celebrate yet because my favorite bakery had a fire, and won't be in business again for a few months.  It is not a birthday without my favorite cake - so I will wait.  Instead of gorging on cake, we gorged on cleaning by picking up trash in the neighborhood.



On my morning run, I kept seeing lots and lots of beer cans.  It was so ugly and depressing, I no longer wanted to run that route.  Well, we fixed that.  In about 20 minutes, we picked up 3 bags of trash - mostly Miller Lite.  I can hardly wait to go run tomorrow, and see the beauty left behind.



Wow!  Do I look old - but I guess that is to be expected since I am getting so close to the big 40.

Meditation: For Everyone

I know many think meditation is for hippies.  You may go on believing that until you try it, or watch these prisoners, and see if your mind opens.  Meditation is all about peace and maturity.

If meditation helps prisoners, what could it do for the rest of us?

Personally, I have only put my toe into the waters of meditation.  I believe in it completely.  And, I find it terrifying, wonderful, odd, interesting and importantly powerful.

Yes, the boys are learning the gift of quiet.

Blizzard 2016

This is what boys do in the middle of a blizzard - make their own storm.

 One child

 Another child joins in a hug

 The hug becomes a tackle

 And they both go down.

 Meanwhile, the grown-up boy works.


 And the day after the snow ... the little boys play

 Chilling in the snow

The best part of snow ... the run down the hill 

All smiles at the top of the hill and ready to go down again

He is always one to dig a tunnel
