“Without Her: Sacred Dust”

       I have picked up my pen several times, placed the pad in front of me and yet, I haven’t been able to finish anything. Is it because my muse is missing? Is it laziness? Is it grief? Or perhaps a combination of all of the above…       Last time, dearContinue reading ““Without Her: Sacred Dust””

“Beloved”

    On the road again. Sitting in the hotel room with Michael W Smith playing in the background;I looked over the pile of pillows to see my daughter reading a book. A deep engulfed trance. She’s reading a novel written by a Mennonite author, it’s my book actually but I let her check itContinue reading ““Beloved””

“I Love You”

I Love You…  Three big, little words. Big in it’s meaning or meanings but small in a sense; in the amount of words and effort it takes to write or say the sentence. It is the sentence that every woman as well as every man in love wants to hear. Every child wants to hear their parentsContinue reading ““I Love You””

“Without Her: 7 Months Later”

  Hello, dear readers, a lot has happened since I last wrote to you. I started a “6 Months Later” but never posted it, I didn’t feel it and thought it’s better to write honest feelings, rather than write  something I forced out.

“Without Her: Friday Night Booze and Bluez”

   It started with one glass then another then another and another…     Like a fisherman I casted out my text to see who would bite. I was in the mood to talk. There was a lot on my mind and I needed someone. It was a long  day. I just wanted to goContinue reading ““Without Her: Friday Night Booze and Bluez””

“Without Her: 4 Months Later”

           October 14th marks the fourth month… and to quote Chris Stapleton,”My life has become a country song”  How fitting too, since I’ve been listening to country music for the past month.

“With Her: 19 Years, A Great Run”

Today August 8th, is our 19th wedding anniversary…      Last time, my dear reader, I told you about the anger that I was feeling.

Sure I feel a bit cheated out of not being in Greece or New OrleansContinue reading ““With Her: 19 Years, A Great Run””

“Without Her: Anger”

I have stacks and stacks of papers and letters on my bed, desk, chair and ottoman. I now nap (I don’t really sleep) with half my bed covered in bills, letter…and newspapers. Well, the newspapers I’d fully intended on reading. But in the beginning I didn’t want to read the news. Now I don’t haveContinue reading ““Without Her: Anger””
