Stuck in a Rut

Stuck in a Rut

Vacations are a wonderful way to take a break and renew yourself, but they aren’t always practical or convenient. When you feel like you are falling into a rut and are looking for something to give you that fresh, new feeling, make small adjustments to your daily life’s comings and goings. Try a restaurant you’ve… Continue Reading

Whispers of the Scene

Whispers of the Scene

As I walked through the gardens admiring the beautiful landscape, I paused for a moment to watch some guests photograph themselves amongst the flowers. I notice a man standing alone in the background. He was slightly bent over, in a labored sort of way, and was leaning on his shovel for support. His hair was… Continue Reading

Soleless

Soleless

A few years ago, I sent my mom some moccasins, without rubber soles, because her feet hurt—I now have them back. I’ve had moose leather moccasins for years, but they have rubber soles. I like to go barefoot sometimes, but when I do, I have to take my time and step gingerly through the woods.… Continue Reading

Lighthouse Keeper

Lighthouse Keeper

I just met a retired Coast Guard man and chatted for awhile. It turns out, in the 50’s, he used to man lighthouses around Acadia National Park, Mount Desert Island, Maine. (What a coincidence! I’ve been speaking of Acadia these past few days because we just took a road trip through the park.) He said… Continue Reading

It Only Takes One

It Only Takes One

I was feeling a little blue today when I ran into a young woman that we met years ago. She was a teenager living in difficult circumstances, not of her making. For a young lady, she seemed ahead of her years – determined, focused, and more mature and honest than the support system she was… Continue Reading

Who Are You

Who Are You

I met a senior man today. He asked me about the origin of my name, so I returned the interest. All of his life, he thought he was French, Sweedish, and Native American, with a Native American princess in his bloodline. And he built his life around those supported beliefs. He has a fondness for… Continue Reading

Mistakenly Beautiful

“You’re doing it wrong!” she said angrily. “You’re supposed to put the vinegar in, then the drops!” We had been invited to a gathering to color eggs. Nine of us sat around the table with all the proper ingredients for traditional egg coloring. We were instructed, reminded really, on what to do; after all, we… Continue Reading

Love Finds a Way

Love Finds a Way

They were both die-hard baseball fans – the kind that breathed baseball! The year…1946! He was in college and couldn’t break away from exams. She was passing through St. Louis when the World Series started streaming through her car speakers. It’s all they could think about between exams and tolls — each other, and wishing they could… Continue Reading

Be Beautiful

Be Beautiful

I met with someone yesterday and made my “first impression” as she walked up to me. She was going through a difficult time, and I offered a supportive shoulder for her sadness. The more we talked, the more she relaxed and exposed her  ; the more she exposed her , the more beautiful she became… Continue Reading

Not Just A Bud

Not Just A Bud

“I’m just a worker,” she replied when I asked if she was the manager. I recalled a similar conversation many years ago; only it was me who said, “I’m just a bus girl” when a customer asked me what my job was. “Never say just,” he replied with a kind and gentle demeanor. Remembering how his… Continue Reading
