How Many Steps

Our house, or the side of it and all the history of a hundred and forty years living.

It's Only His Winter Tale

I live in the countryside, but recently saw a fox rummaging through a bin in the nearby town. A loose conntection to the Inspiration Point, but a cautionary 'tale'

Cat Therapy

Posted on Sat, 06 Oct 2018

I so adored this story.  Partly because it is true and beautiful, partly because I adore cats and one saved my wife's sanity.  Tali came to us in April 2014.  She jumped on my son's shoulders at the cat rescue centre....'she never does that!'...

I didn't intend  to read from start to finish, but I did and loved it.  I know that feeling that comes back in an instant when a smell hits my senses.  I still wonder at the completness of the experience that includes the emotion of that moment...

You've done it again

i loved this poem.  I spent years splashing cash thinking it would impress.  Then my daughter came along with gifts that meant so much and I was transformed.  A message of love in each gift.  Caring...a huge plus in the world  of giving.
