    Truth and Honor

    They stand at the corners, diagonally from each other outside the house. Normally at rest, there are times they move into a fiercely protective stance with wings covering the four walls. They aren’t feathered. They are armor. They are tall. They are formidable. They are sent here to protect me. Truth and Honor. In the silence of the afternoon it is stunning to…

    Alone and Not

    Wind Chimes

    Today is Sunday. It’s summer and breezy. A dust cloud has blown in from the Sahara, slightly masking the blue of the Texas sky. (That’s a long way!) As a kid, I loved summer on the farm in Michigan. Especially in late June and early July because it is cherry season! There’s nothing like fruit or veggies fresh from the…
