Not many go here anymore Every time I go by this old farmstead with the trees crowded around and over the entrance, I am reminded how much my life is like this place. The fields still grow some wild grasses and a little alfalfa, the fences are not used for cattle anymore, and the roadsContinue reading “I Dare… Maybe”

It’s now trout season and the hunt will be on for some rainbows and maybe a brown or some square tails through the ice. Who is with me for another adventure? This is much more than a fishing obsession. It’s more about adventure, living on the edge, and venturing into dangerous territories of life. Let’sContinue reading “Go Dangerous”
Enter the Mentored Mentor
It’s Sunday afternoon with a couple of hours of bright sunlight left. My wife is in a novel for a while, it’s unseasonably warm and the day is too good to stay inside. What does one do in January in northern Minnesota? The list isn’t very long in my case. I do have several passions,Continue reading “Enter the Mentored Mentor”
2011 in review
Thanks to all who read and enjoyed my 2011 blogs. 2010 was one of the worst years of my life physically and emotionally. My wife has been the stable one with much support from family friends and church community. 2011 was a good recovery year trying some new wings in jobs, music recording, speaking, writing,Continue reading “2011 in review”
Lost Again… and other circular patterns.
I stayed out too late. The sun had set almost 2 hours before and the night was totally black but for a few stars seen through a haze overhead. It didn’t take me long to realize I would get lost quickly as I set out to find the truck less than a half mile awayContinue reading “Lost Again… and other circular patterns.”
Ice Fishing and Christmas
New ice in northern Minnesota. Literally a thin skin on the water with unbelievable strength. Four inches of clear ice and a small car can drive on it (if there are no cracks, thin spots, snow ice, no wind to buckle it, no springs underneath, you don’t drive too fast, and other unforeseen issues) ifContinue reading “Ice Fishing and Christmas”
How do you greet the morning?
Like fire in the sky the day came in a wonderment of colors. The clouds picked up and threw the reds at our little place in northern Minnesota. I put my coffee on the railing by the front door and snapped a few shots of the morning skyline by the drive. Nothing would be crossedContinue reading “How do you greet the morning?”
The Dark Side of Light
I often contemplate concepts too big to fully grasp. Sitting in the dark while waiting for the light is a part of hunting, camping, fishing, hiking, and much of the outdoor world that I love. I memorized a verse (John 1:5 in the Bible) and have thought about the multiple meanings of darkness not being ableContinue reading “The Dark Side of Light”
Cold Spots-Warm Heart?
Stand in the right place and get a sunburn on one side of your body and freeze the other side that didn’t catch the heat from the sun. There were spots of snow in this high meadow where the sun was blocked from reaching certain areas. Have you ever had God speak to you throughContinue reading “Cold Spots-Warm Heart?”
One Wild Dream
Ah Yes. Dreams. Ever had a doozie? Well this one was so real I wandered around the house for awhile to see if I was in my dream world or actually awake. So Sit back relax and enjoy this recollection. This is long for a blog but short for a story. Yes I changed theContinue reading “One Wild Dream”
