    Senses

    Raindrops on the windows and thunder rolls in waves, Today there is a blend of heat, energy, and liquid cool. I am a reflection of the nature around me.

    Uphill to Beauty

    Ok – so I have a confession. I’m not a particularly patient person. Oh, I can be patient when it comes to dealing with people, but in situations…not so much. Like… Traffic. Lines at the grocery store. Waiting virtually anywhere. None of these are my favorite things to do.¬†As I wrestle with this today, I am trying to do a…
