April Is In Season

April is here to shepherd in the season of Spring. The lion has roared. The lamb has laid down. Now its time for sunshine and growth. Flowers break the surface. They break through the soil which is weakened by the melted snow. The color green will once again flourish. It's a backdrop to all the... Continue Reading →

Flight Risk

Wanting to fly while both feet are stuck on the ground. Bounded to the ground by gravity and responsibility. Wanting to escape while looking at the sky. The clouds almost seem within reach.

The glass poked her and made her bleed. Her rough skin shaved fragments of glass off of him. A painful experience for both. But they... Continue Reading →

Winter Rains

Winter rains are cold and dreary. They soak the frozen ground. The water puddles with no where else to go. Winter rains remind us that this could be snow. Too warm for snowflakes to come down.
