How Many Oranges?

I live in citrus land. Did you know from the time you plant a little orange tree until it produces the first couple of oranges is at least three to four years? A sweet lady recently told me she moved here thirty-six years ago….

Transforming…

Want to make a difference? To who, for who – what difference? We’re conditioned that life is all about making our mark, being remembered. That’s a lot of pressure. Remembered how long, and for what? More questions than answers when the questions are all…

Crab Clog…

I noticed the pool vacuum wasn’t moving, pulling it out I found out a little crab had been caught in the suction, blocking the way. I actually have crab clog now and then. Times when my heart knows the right words and attitudes, but…

Free Fall…

Ever actually seen a field of wheat? Me either – but I love the pictures showing stalks gently blowing in the breeze, like a sea of gold. These days machines do much of the work taking the grain from the stalk and leaves –…

The Table…

We’re invited. We’ll be satisfied. We’ll have the perfect seat. We won’t ever want to leave. Banquets or parties can be awkward – what to wear, where to sit, who to talk to and about what. The there’s this: I have a hard time…

Growing Up…

Change Up…

I don’t like change – maybe that’s universal. There are the lucky few who thrive on ever changing ways, but for the most part, I think we like reliable ordinary. Small changes are the most annoying: just when you find a great lunch place they…

Made With Love By…

A corner of the closet is home to a box where special cards, crayon pictures, and glued together popsicle sticks are safely tucked away. Treasures that someday will be found and the finder will wonder ‘what on earth’ – precious to the maker at the time and forever to…

Sure Thing…

  These days uncertainty greets as our feet hit the floor. Weather, work, politics, violence, money, health, loved ones – nothing is sure anymore. Still, we are all looking for a sure thing – even as we reach out it seems to slip from…

Rain Walk

     On a recent trip I couldn’t resist a bright peach rain jacket – of course, once I got home the skies were not rainy. It didn’t take long, one day the skies got dark and fat drops began to splatter all around. At…

Overflowing…

     Today the skies are bluest blue and a cool gentle breeze has finally ushered in autumn. Gently the morning has unfolded the beauty that is all around… My daughter sent a text saying “Happy Fall, Momma! Can you send me the recipe for…

The Job

A young man set out one morning – to make his way in the world. He had a family and they needed him to make his mark. His car was old, but his shirt was clean and pressed. He had tried so hard so…
