Do you cherish your humble and silky life?

I’ve noticed whole peony bushes in bloom around town. Mine are slowly making their way open and I can hardly wait to put my nose down in their soft petals to take a good long whiff of their aroma. Today seems to be the perfect day to share Mary Oliver’s exquisite poem called “Peonies”. Enjoy! […]

Bring Love to the Table

This weekend I’ll be dying eggs with whoever is willing to join me around our kitchen table. I’m hoping it will include my 4-year old grandson, Linden!

Winter’s Warmth

It’s been bitterly cold the past few days. I’ve been bundled up in my puffy winter coat. My head, hands and feet covered with hat, mittens and boots. This afternoon as I was bracing myself in the cold, pumping gas with the wind whipping around me, I turned my head to see… the sweetest pink […]

Lions and Tigers and Bears

My life this week has been filled with contrasts. On the one hand, I’ve been immersed in fun as I accompany my dog to play practice. Yes, I said my dog! Daisy is playing “Toto” in a community production of “The Wizard of Oz”. We have delighted in her ability to bond with the cast […]
