September thoughts

September is the New January. Give It a Try!

(Read in about :03)"Every moment is a fresh beginning.” ~T.S. Eliot   September has burst upon us. Beautiful, glorious, blue-skyed month that she is. Full of promise and new starts. Vacations are sweet memories, school is well into the first quarter, and Labor Day, the second bookend of summer, has come and gone. Routines, so wonky all summer, have gotten more normal and the wheels of our everyday activities are humming along smoothly...

Readers Become Writers Who Want Readers. Right?

(Read in just over :03)“I can’t write without a reader. It’s precisely like a kiss—you can’t do it alone.” ~ John Cheever   Long before a person even thinks about becoming a writer, they're almost always a reader. And more than a casual reader. No, more like a book junkie. Like me, I've always been happiest with my nose in a book. I have to wonder why there isn’t...

If you live on a farm for 34 years it will change you. It sure changed me. Maybe it's corny but nothing grows more abundantly on a farm than metaphors for life. Living...

Follow the Sun, Sunshine. Live Light, Shine Bright

(Read in :03)"Daylight follows a dark night."~Proverb   I picked today to come back because it's going to be an awesome day! A total eclipse of the sun! They tell me it won't happen here for another 375 years. That's 15 generations from now, a time span of near Biblical magnitude. It's a big deal! Who'd want to miss it?     But then again, my husband thinks life with me is like...

Need More Moral Fiber in Your Diet?

(:05 read)"Just try to be the best you can be; never cease trying to be the best you can be. That's in your power." ~ John Wooden   Traits like character, integrity, and moral fiber seem to fascinate people. I read an article on a sports network website a couple of days ago that really got me thinking. The commentary was about a coach who seems to be...
