Shaping the Slow Edge

There’s a place where my zero to 60 lifestyle each day simmers down to almost nil for a week at a time. I personally need an edge and speed doesn’t do it. This is me I’m talking about. Your place to slow down, regroup, recover (or however you say it) and recharge your life isContinue reading “Shaping the Slow Edge”

Life in the edges

Edges. We are drawn there. Shorelines, sunrises and sets, mountain peaks, field and woods edges, seasonal changes/overlaps. Edges make life exciting. We want to live on the edge, Okay, some more than others. We celebrate edges. Births, birthdays, first day of schools and lasts of every kind and species of edge draw us. News edges,Continue reading “Life in the edges”

Seeing is Believing Maybe Sometimes

I feel quite little, as in small, as I am watching tons of snow falling out of the sky here in Minnesota. Forecasters giddy with bad news have predicted 12-24 inches in the next couple of days. At the present rate nonstop it will double that (I have faith in the brilliant forecasters accuracy though…_______________???).Continue reading “Seeing is Believing Maybe Sometimes”

It’s Picnic Season

Spring is not officially recognized in our family until we can have an picnic. I guess it was up to me to find the fire pit, check and make sure fires wouldn’t spread and burn down the forest and make the picnic table presentable. My pictures prove it. Spring has come to northern Minnesota!! MyContinue reading “It’s Picnic Season”

Navigating Winds Seasons

Clattering branches snows lost in thought shifting blame winds of the soul I’m waiting for Spring. Wanting another season. Nature says not yet. Gary ┬áBut you, O Lord, know me; you see me, and test my heart toward you. Jeremiah 12:3a, ESV

Rambling Like a Rabbit Chasing five Blades of Grass in the Wind

David of Davids Daily Dose used my other lake sundogs picture today (All Haiku, click here) My favorite I think. I have been surprised to see that my photos posted on Unsplash for free download have hit 2.4 million views and 13,000 downloads. Most pleasing is when I see pictures put to good use. IContinue reading “Rambling Like a Rabbit Chasing five Blades of Grass in the Wind”

Progressions

We innocently start with “I wonder what it would be like to…?” A match, somewhere in the corner of the brain is lit, and sooner than later the fuse. A path mysteriously appears toward…, and whala. About that “whala”. It’s harder and bigger than we thought. I’m saying “we” because I am hoping I’m notContinue reading “Progressions”

Old Story Still True

We often know a person (we think) through their writing. Like many, I probably disclose myself in small measured doses through my writing as most of us reveal without even knowing it. I had forgot about this old post. Jack Flacco of https://lookingtogod.org/ pointed me back to a lot of memories from an old postContinue reading “Old Story Still True”

Cabin Fever Withdrawal

Expectations and reality. A good example of what it isn’t was sent to me by a friend who is getting a bit off kilter. “Day 12 without chocolate; lost hearing in left eye”. I passed it on to another friend who said “That’s it exactly!” I sent them both a number to call for aContinue reading “Cabin Fever Withdrawal”

Picture a Ping Pong Spring

Right now we are on the “pong.” for the 11th time. Last night the weatherman drew a big circle around our area on the northern Minnesota with a “to be determined” announcement as the time approaches. If this…then that type statements gave me a ray of hope for that profession. I have to admit, honestyContinue reading “Picture a Ping Pong Spring”
