There were two frogs who both fell into deep pails of milk. With slick edges, the frogs could not climb out, with nothing beneath their legs, t...

guarding the fish, you Thetis
wanting a way out to sea or to the sky.

Side by side, my friend and I walked in a warm summer rain on the gravel path above my garden. I pointed out my shriveled potato plants and cried, “They’re dead!” She looked at me, somewhat shocked, for that sentence revealed my ignorance about homesteading. “They’re not dead. That means they’re... Read more of this blog post »
