And Now it is December

Now it is December. I think I should write something encouraging in these darkening days, but come up empty. I don’t want to wear a mask here, so I speak of the barrenness and trust I’m not alone in the wilderness. I don’t have three steps to find happiness, five ideas to streamline this season, sev Read more of this blog post »

The Nurse Who Mocked Covid

 



Did you hear about the Oregon Oncology nurse who posted a bragging video on TikTok about how she travels as she likes,  doesn’t wear a mask when she’s off work and lets her kids have unfettered play dates? You can get the story here. 


This on the heels of the earlier post I made about how exhaus

5 Ways to Maintain Good Eyesight

One day, you’re out driving, and you miss your turn because you can’t read the street sign. The next, you find yourself squinting to decipher the words in your newspaper. Are the font sizes changing? Or are your eyes getting worse? As we age, we often notice signs of deteriorating vision. While Read more of this blog post »

Short Story Wednesday: "Peach Cobbler" from THE SECRET LIVES OF CHURCH LADIES

         


   "My mother's peach cobbler was so good, it made God himself cheat on his wife"

A great first line in a terrific little collection of stories dealing with Black women, church-going, and life in a patriarchal world. God, in this case, is Pastor Troy Neely, who Olivia at first believes

19th Century Christmas Wish List, 2020

Have you been shopping earlier than usual this year? I have, partly because whatever I buy will have to be shipped to me before I ship to those I love. Yes, I could ship direct, but I want to see the items, and I like wrapping things. But if you’re still looking for the reader, or writer, in you Read more of this blog post »

2020: It Changed Everything

I don’t know about you, but at the beginning of 2020, I had some big, ambitious plans. I’d hoped to: publish two full-length novels, complete my second full marathon, and begin transitioning out of a job that I no longer enjoyed. Those were my top goals for the year that would push me closer to livi

Could this be true love? Or is it just for Christmas?


Finding an abandoned dog beside the road isn’t the Christmas surprise interior designer, Molly Ford is hoping for. But when the local vet can’t find a space for the bedraggled dog, Molly makes a rash decision.

Incredible dog rescue story

Seth Meyers shares this story of a man who actually pried open the jaws of an alligator to save his puppy. This story touched me even more so because the puppy is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who looks just like Baxter the Wonder Dog.

Two humpback whales


On one of our Alaska cruises trips last season, we came across a large group of humpback whales. There were maybe around 30 or so. I don’t know what they were up to, but they seemed to be busy at the surface. The main group was maybe a 1/2 mile from where we were watching them when these two sur

Why I don’t drink.

 


“Why don’t you drink?” This question has cropped up numerous times over the years in my work with teenagers as a youth minister, and to explain why I don’t drink has always struck me as odd. Alcohol is the only drug in my experience that I’ve had to explain why I don’t use it. And I was asked the q

Getting Through Being 2020 Fine

A wee while back I wrote a post about being fine in 2020.  It was an ode to how we're basically fine but not fine but sorta fine only not really.  You can read that here.

 

As a follow-up, I guess I should say a bit more about what life being kinda-fine is like for me personally.  This is not a gu Read more of this blog post »
