"Much of our confusion in life comes from giving our attention too quickly to the next thing..." says Mark Nepo this morning. Ah, now that touches a nerve in me. It does some of you, too.

Have you ever encountered a word or a book or a name several times in the course of 24-hours? I always marvel when this happens to me. One time I encountered the word, insouciance, not once, not twice, but three times within that same day. Who uses a word like "insouciance?" I had to check the...

I had an ooh wee ooh moment last evening. For Christmas, my partner Jack got me an electronic picture frame. I loaded it up with photographs stored on my computer, and we let it cycle through all those the photos. After dinner, the frame displayed this photo.   It's the log home I built and...

In the mood for a scenery change, I took myself for a short trip today. When I boarded the train for Rockridge, I was overwhelmed with the chatter, as I made my way to a vacant seat in a crowded train. There were many groups of people having conversations and from my perspective, coming from my...
