  After a storm in Albion; for perspective, that's a bulk petroleum plant lit up in the distance.     SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK                 I’ve been complaining about winter weather in a lot of my columns, so I thought...

We had rain! It was showing 0%! And rained hard for about an hour. More to come. This picture was taken at sunset with the storm clouds sitting there as pretty as a picture and the setting sun coloring it a soft orange. Tomorrow, I’ll show off a cloud with a hole in it. Clouds fascinate me, can...

Oh, I know it’s not their fault that the weather doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do. We were so looking forward to a week of rain, but it keeps slip-sliding away. Still, some days have a projected higher percentage chance, so maybe… I won’t hold my breath. Still, this was what was brewing...

We had beautiful storm clouds last night, and a plane flew overhead to go through one of them. Is that crazy or what. So I was trying to get a shot of him. And then I had to dramatize the cloud shot. So what do you think? Pretty interesting, right??? It really looks a lot more dramatic than...

It’s hot, hot, hot, and all sun, so I was surprised to see the storm clouds when I went out to get the mail! And the beautiful sunset! I, of course, had to run back in and get my camera.  Top picture is the original before doing anything to it. Then I had to play with the pictures. And...

Went off around the world this morning, following memories my nose knew.  A rare confluence of four conditions sent my nose on its journey.  Dark morning skies brought actual heavy thunder, flickering lightning and then actual rain.  None elsewhere in the world, these rarely happen...

A storm's been brewing off the coast, Clouds are dark along the horizon, blackening the sky~ the wind picking up, throwing up whitecaps, changing the calm, green sea to black ink.   His brow furrows, and his countenance grows forbidding as anger brews below the surface of a perceived calm....

July 6     What is at the Eye of the Storm?     Serenity is the alignment of three knowledges 1. Knowing that I am not without skill, talent, gifts. 2. Knowing that I am not without community, connection, comfort. 3. Knowing that I am not without G-d, whether or not I believe G-...

The season change is likely influencing me but I feel like there's a shift in the air.  My moods are stable as the ocean rolling in a perfect storm. I don't know what it means so I counsel myself to hold on during my meditation today.  Hold on because I don't know what's coming and don't...

  At 3 am, the phone rang. This was a few years ago. “Hi, how are you?” I was groggy and the male voice unfamiliar, unsure. I should have hung up. Instead, I said, “I don’t think I know you.” There was a short pause and then, “But I do. I am Lt. Commander X, and I want to talk with you.” Why...
