Cold as Ice

It’s not officially winter yet, but winter obviously pays no mind to the calendar. It’s supposed to warm up enough today to melt the ice – but the weather report says to expect 2-3 inches of snow tomorrow.  Awesome!

Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today.

Grandma Was Here

 My husband found a patch of cactus in the woods behind our home last evening. He told our children, “Grandma was here,” meaning she had planted the cactus when she lived on our property years ago. She now lives in town, and my husband has been working to restore our land to the pristine condition it was in when he was a boy. My young son loves cactus, and has been asking me to plant cactus seeds,so the discovery of this patch was a pleasant surprise in more ways than one.


It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts. -K.T. Jong
