Off the Rock | Discovering Dixieland

As an island girl who grew up twenty minutes from the Pacific, I am always a little stunned by the beauty of the South. I’m not surprised, it’s just that I suppose no one ever told me how lush and green it is, or about the amazing natural beauty that you will find if you Continue Reading

Joyful Meditation | Smell The Flowers

There are some mornings when the drive through of our neighborhood fast food joint is more like a parking lot. I haven’t been able to figure out why, because there’s no pattern to it. Maybe someone forgot to set the hashbrowns to fry. Maybe they’re besieged by an unexpected influx of breakfast sandwich seekers. Maybe Continue Reading

At The Root Of Things | Homecoming

  On the road home—though strangers now live there—the tender green hills and pastures called like a living carpet begging to be to stroked.  A giggle escaped my lips at the renaming of these country lanes in the last twenty years for the ease of the 9-1-1 system: gleaming green and white signs exclaim “Haymakertown Continue Reading
