Little Windmill Shouting from the Rooftop

I love this Little Windmill in a bucolic setting — she makes me so happy. She is not that majestic or “beautiful” but she is absolutely amazing and endearing to me.

Don’t Dim Your Wattage

The Unexpected is a Gift

Last night I said to my 90-year-old mom “I never get any cardinals…” We were talking about birds and which kinds we are able to attract into our yards. JUST NOW a bright red cardinal flew onto my deck and sat on the iron patio table. It seemed to look RIGHT AT ME through my kitchen window where I sit at my laptop and work, write, gaze, and dream. This is the first cardinal ever at this address that I have seen in the entire seven years I’ve lived here. add color to your life Native Americans believed that the cardinal represented... [Read more]
