In Like a Lamb

Here in sunny southern AZ, I’m finding that Spring is edging ever closer.  New plants are starting to come up all around me and I love it.  I just wish I could send it to the other parts of the country that are still knee deep in that cold, white, frozen precipitation.  They’re getting all…

A New Star in the Night Sky

Part of the grief process for me is writing, so I am posting this today for my own catharsis. When my brother passed away a few years ago, it just so happened that five of my closest friends were with me at my home for our annual reunion.  I was surrounded by so much love,…

Gracias!

Ride ‘Em Little Cowboy
