Telling the Stories We Live Inside

What does it mean—“to make sense of life”? It simply means fitting the elements into what I consider to be a coherent narrative… The story of my real life is not a neatly crafted story, not an aesthetically unified, coherent novel or drama;  it’s something of a hodge-podge. It’s full of digression, overlapping subplots, unfinished lines of action, trivia, changes […]

White Water Fling

Margaret A. sent this story: It was the summer of 1996 when I decided to go white water rafting in the Grand Canyon, at the age of 44.  I knew it was the thing to do the moment a line from the movie Grand Canyon popped into my mind: talking to Kevin Klein, Danny Glover […]

Monet in the Mountains

James B. shared this image: On Labor Day weekend (2001) in Colorado, my daughter and I drove up to the summit of Mt. Evans. At over 14,000 feet the summit is well above the tree line so there are only low growth plants covering the mountainside.  Our timing was perfect as the plants were turning […]

People were digging tunnels from their front door to the street. After one snowstorm when the roads were cleared, my family took a drive […]

Summer mud-play

Vickie and I woke early that Saturday to morning air, freshened by overnight thunderstorms, streaming into our second-floor window. We were sisters just released from a school year and ready for adventure!  Cereal with milk, quick change from pajamas to play clothes–and we were off. Our curiosity about the construction site down the road drew […]

Giving and Thanks

Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds. … [T]he credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena…who at best knows in the end the triumph […]
