Waiting.

Waiting. We are all in a state of it. Waiting in rooms. Waiting for hunger to set in reminding you to eat. Waiting for the drip to decrease the pain and the nurse to respond to the call. Waiting. Waiting for the hour to pass along with the lump residing in your throat and for […]

Ziggy and Julie. Married

With pen to paper, even then, I sat unwavered.  What began as the confession of a middleschoolers heart making it’s way onto paper in the form of rhyming poems, writing your name 100 times over, wolves, swords and hearts… has delivered us here. Hope made it’s deposit there some twenty years ago and today I am […]

My Table.

Welcome to my table. It’s beginning; the season for gathering. Thanksgiving, the precursor to christmas and the reminder of times past while glaring at the present and squinting towards the future.  I love merriment but I can bah- humbug with the best of them. Doesn’t tiny Tim get the turkey too; I think to myself? […]

Jeremy & Erin. Married

What is being written, etched in eternity’s cosmos, I couldn’t have imagined it…nor could I have dreamt it. All our days were written before yet there was one of them.  We were living and writing as we lived. It became art. It’s craftsmanship wasn’t due to us, it was the good gift of our Maker. […]

Fall Gatherings. Pumpkin Carving

I walked up the doorstep, rang the door bell and Owen greeted me. “Ms. Christmas is here…” and I was. I was about to be embraced by October and kissed by autumn. Pumpkin soup, handpicked apples from the orchard with a caramel drizzle and pumpkin carving. I can’t remember the last time I carved a pumpkin. […]
