Morning Sketch from a Field Afternoon: treasures

I drew this sketch this morning, with my morning tea, from a few first sketches I’d drawn yesterday—(it was still a heatwave, so I’d gone back in after a little while even with my water canteen.) I drew with pencil, eraser, and pocket-book in a little spot in nature where I could kneel beneath this

Memoirs & Autobiographical Writing

I'm currently working on an exciting memoir, which will hopefully be published by early 2023 :)

Is “Jehovah” God or Not?

If you grew up singing hymns, you are familiar with the name “Jehovah”—and even if you don’t know a hymnbook from a matchbook, you are still likely familiar with the name.

CDC says vaccination no longer needed?

Everyone can pretty much go back to normal. Focus on illness that is medically significant. Stop worrying about positive cases because nothing is going to stop them. Think about the bigger picture of overall social health. End the compulsion.

Review of The Intrepid Brotherhood from Reader Views
