Cruising

I am knee deep in editing The Upright Son. There are two pieces of good news. Number one, it is on schedule and will be turned in to the publisher by the end of the week. Number two, I think I have a winner here. You’re going to like it. This and that department: I’ve […]

Back in the Saddle

I’ve been gone for a while with my nose stuck to the grindstone. You’ll be pleased to know that it type “THE END” on The Upright Son a week ago and entrusted it to the mercies of beta readers. Once I get it back (hopefully by the end of the week) I will have three […]

Has the Wind Died Down?

I’ve been blown hither and yon for the last several days and not just because the urban wilds of the east coast were hit with a major winter storm! I’ve been running all over social media. I have two more Facebook “takeovers” this week and two more guest blog posts, but they are all (at […]

Slow But Steady

The morning after a storm pounded the south and east, and the urban wilds of Eastern Pennsylvania (and New Jersey) awoke to steady rain that has washed away last evenings snow.

While the weather kept us in more than we like, I was able to introduce her to Time Team (one of my favorite television indulgences, and the game of Carcassonne. Mostly […]

Free book! Coffee first.

Morning Music

The trees sang this morning, a symphony after the long silence. I added my morning psalms. Let all the earth cry out to God with joy. A goldfinch flashed his coat in the sun while the catbird devoured his breakfast. The first few irises peeked open overnight, making the alleluias come easily this morning. My […]

Blessings in a Time of Solitude

A fit of grim humor came over me this week I searched for plague jokes. Sometimes laughter is the only medicine that works. But they wore thin. Beloved and I were already keeping in solitude a week ago, you may recall. After a few days of ambivalence and confusion about that we concluded we were […]
