Where has 40 years gone?

Hello from Fog and Flame, While many feel there is a let down after the holidays, and there is some truth to that reality. However, the first part of February is, for me, a time of memories and events which have shaped my life in more ways than I am readily aware. The subconscious consequence ofContinue reading “Where has 40 years gone?”

Slowing Down

Good early morning, It is barely 4:00 a.m. And I have been awake a bit more than an hour. In the past couple of weeks I have been in bed more times than I can remember before 8:30 at night. It does mean that I wake up earlier than I might wish, but that is perhapsContinue reading “Slowing Down”

Realizing a Mistake and Blaming Myself

Hello from the acre, It has been a busy day and a disconcerting one. Progress has been made in so many ways, but progress in the world of imperfection is always fleeting and tenuous.

Perhaps it reminds me of the times I would play in the yard one particularly snowy winter and we madeContinue reading “Grateful for a Life, but One too Short”

From Chocolate to Michael Jackson

Good Morning, Yesterday (Monday) might have been the most enjoyable day thus far, though we are headed on an excursion today that should be quite amazing. I have some small concern as it is a bit overcast, the most since we have been here, but the clouds seem to move quickly, so we will see.Continue reading “From Chocolate to Michael Jackson”

Carente de Sentido Común

Good Morning, It has been a long few days since I last posted. Late last week I made a quick (and somewhat brutal) trip to Wisconsin and back. I made it 2000+ miles in about 66 hours (and 36 hours of not really driving). The trip there was not that bad, but the last twoContinue reading “Carente de Sentido Común”
