  July 4   RENTING JOY     I cannot buy happiness.  No matter how much money I spend, how hard I work, I can never pay bliss off on lay away.  The angles of escape for glee are phenomenal.  I see runaway emotions and must concede ownership.  When...

If there’s thunder, plug your ears. Putter around the house in something loose and elastic, flashlight in hand. A power outage should turn your focus toward storm drains and generators, away from the memory of one specific cheek- curve, how it bloomed with palm prints the day he spoke his mind and...

A midsummer thunderstorm had just passed and I went outside for fresh air.  While sitting in the sultry humidity, my cat and dog at my feet, I became aware of hummingbirds darting around my head.  I stepped inside, quickly grabbing my Canon PowerShot and quietly sat back down,...

At 1:55 a.m. Saturday evening, the loudest clap of thunder in the United States shook our house like a 4.0 earthquake.  (I haven’t been in an earthquake; it might have been a 5.0 or 6.0 magnitude.) I nudged RJ. “Did you feel that?” RJ mumbled. (The next morning he said the thunder became a bomb in...
