I believe in the magic of words, love, and tenacity. There is a world out there that needs to be explored, researched, and written out to try to make some sense of it, and to make a better place for the children of tomorrow.
A Modern-Day Quest for Freedom
A field of radiant sunflowers (sunyashniki) nestled in verdant foliage is an apt representation of the country known as Ukraine. Representing the warmth and power of the sun, the national flower of Ukraine thrives in fields that face the eastern sunrise.
Coming Home Again
Dustin Henry had finally come home. He had not come home to settle down and help his Grandfather run the farm, as he had once expected. He had come home to bury his Grandfather. Had he seen it coming, Dustin would have put his continuing education on hold, taken a sabbatical, and joined Grandpa Wilbur in his final months and days.
Coming Home Again
There was something about a rainy day in the little mountain town that Dustin Henry called home. It was raining the day he left the farm. It seemed only fitting that it would be raining when he returned; a gentle, cleansing rain that gave the air that awesome scent he loved…the smell of the earth right after the rain.
'Tis the Season to be Jolly'
Decorating with bright colored lights, trimming a tree in Holiday fashion, baking cookies, pies, and cakes, wrapping presents, attending Seasonal parties, hovering close to an open fire in the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa...and in so many other ways, we savor the Holiday Season that accompanies the Winter Solstice and Yule each year.
Who Am I?
If you really get to know me, you might find that I am a reflection of all the things and people I love and care about. Each trait that defines me became a constant part of my personality by repetition. Every thought I think, every friend I get to know and build a stronger relationship with, every family member I have shared most or all of my life with, some now close up and some from a distance...all these things contribute to the composite that is me.
In Memory of Jim Varney (Ernest P. Worrell)
Comedians add so much to our lives by playing parts of fictional characters who seem so real we do not think of them by their real-life names, but by their character names. Like most actors, many names are ascribed to them depending on what part they are playing at the time.
