Facebook is full of people (my friends) eagerly watching for spring. I guess it’s late this year and many are fed up with the wait…as well as flabbergasted by all the snow. I can’t help but think how this reflects on how life also works. We spend so many of the seasons we live in waiting for the next one. If there is too much heat or cold or rain…it’s somehow always wished away while we wait for the rain, cold or heat. I spent many years doing this.

Books and I go back almost 40 years. It has, and continues to be a fantastic relationship. However…there are only a few that have stuck with me through the years.

The only reason I started this blog is because I had a few friends that encouraged it. It is good to create dialogue and maybe even get someone thinking about their own circumstances. In these 45 years I have had many a shallow conversation with people that I know have a lot more to say…why don’t we say it?
