“To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.”

~ Helen Keller


November is playing tricks on us. We are enjoying warm and sunny days that push all thoughts of winter to the wayside. Yesterday, we took a walk in the park and the breeze actually felt warm at times. We’re going to take advantage of these halcyon days to wash windows. Not exciting, but we’re glad for the opportunity since we missed doing it earlier this autumn.

Still thinking about a great time spent with an old (as in long time) friend and her husband last evening. Our lives have taken diverse paths neither of could have predicted on that day we met standing at a bus stop with toddlers in tow. It’s fascinating to find our way back together, in the same city where our friendship first started, after all these years. So much has changed; yet so much is the same. Heart connections are like that.

Today: looking forward to a Friday coffee visit with my bestie (another longtime and precious friend I’ve shared much laughter and tears with over the years), a trip to the garden to harvest greens for a salad, and maybe some camera time. Oh. And those windows.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
