The evolution of America

Why has it taken us almost 150 years to finally talk about and openly debate the real issues surrounding our own Civil War? Questions which, if left unanswered, usher in the death of our Nation as we know it, alive in the hearts of those who knew freedom but lost it. Since the Civil War … Continue reading

On a plateau looking out

Proverbs 13:12 (NIV) 12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. ‘What are men compared to rocks and mountains?” – Jane Austen  Up until this moment, I have walked behind waterfalls, through deep old forest trails and in misty clouds of majestic mountains; on sun pierced mornings, … Continue reading

A mental observer

It is snowing in Nashville this morning; I’m looking out my window at it. This winter it has snowed more than usual here; but I have seen Radnor as a winter wonderland, covered in snow and ice, during the coldest winter I have known. Then, the snow was thick for Nashville, the kind that can … Continue reading

A blind glimpse we follow

I will never forget how struck with joy I was to hear Ken Edwards recall a recent trip to Colorado a year or so ago. I have this timeless image of him in the middle of a mountainous area walking knee-deep in thick laden snow. The trail too difficult to follow, he can not see … Continue reading

The gift of time and the sidelines of life

      A new day, a blank page, a blinking cursor; may my words be few and weighty today. Another morning with the gift of time, I look out the window at the sleet coming down; changing from sleet to chunky globs — chunky rain as my friend Linda says, and then back to sleet again; … Continue reading

My space

This is my space. It is a place I have created for conversation. Who do I talk to? I wonder that myself sometimes; but I know you are out there. From a writing perspective, what matters is that I have an audience, or at least I have the illusion of an audience. Why is that … Continue reading

“Auld Lang Syne” and More Resting in Our Resolutions

So I woke up this morning realizing that I had used a word in my last post that could be misunderstood very easily; and you know that bothers me. I used the word vow; but after looking into it, I think I might have been dead on. For the sake of clarity, I have found … Continue reading

The joy of Jesus lives on past Christmas Day.

When I was a little girl, the only time of year I heard Christian music was during the Christmas season; so after the Christmas meal was eaten and put away, after my aunts and uncles had all gone home, and after the excitement of enjoying our gifts had waned; I was, well, a little let … Continue reading

Setting My Broken Bones

Broken Cisterns – from Wednesday, December 15th, 2010 That’s the thing about broken cisterns; they are just that, broken cisterns. They are the flip coin of a desert wasteland, intermittent cisterns, at first a fire hydrant flooding the street; but the desert returns again to me, waters flooding someone else’s garden. Michael Jackson’s – Thriller … Continue reading

Passage Through the Minarets, Trained in the Crags of Love, Light My Own Light, Allure in a Barren Place

Passage Through The Minarets I travel a narrow mountain trail, with heights of depths on either side; my path becomes a long jagged sword’s edge with every step. The way back more treacherous than the way forward, I press on. I desire to be across the chasm, in the distance, but of my own power, … Continue reading
