Labyrinth Goal

Last year I took an overnight retreat at a monastery located not too far from home tucked away in the woods. When I left, they said I was welcome to come any time to visit or walk the grounds. I had some time to myself today and decided to go there. A few months back […]

Wonders for the Soul

Before my parents started having major health issues, they used to spend about half their time at the cabin and half in the city during the summer. Since I have been with them almost 7 years now, we have made several day trips there and have stayed over a couple of nights now and again. […]

Day of Rest

It was a cool, cloudy, and eventually rainy day today. My dad decided from the morning that this would truly be a day of rest. He woke up to take his morning pill, then went right back to sleep. My mom woke him a couple of times after that for breakfast and he just didn’t […]

Secluded Hike

Recently, we found a book that lists several easy hikes that are not too far away. I browsed through it yesterday knowing that I would have some time to myself today. I didn’t make any definite plans. I definitely didn’t want to be in a crowded place, so I thought I would just see how […]

Environmental Entertainment

We returned home today after spending a few days in the beauty and serenity of the mountains. We never even turned on the TV. Instead, there was plenty to view just outside. The birds at the feeders were not as plentiful as usual, but we enjoyed identifying those who came for a visit. On the […]

Helping Chippy

We were up at the cabin today. We put the bird feeders out on the deck as usual. Once the birds started feasting, the chipmunks arrived to clean up the floor. My dad then realized there was no water for them. The water dish he usually used had been moved to below the deck while […]

Peaceful Twilight

It was a very calm, peaceful evening tonight. My mom and I spent time just sitting on the deck, listening to the sounds of nature quieting down, and watching the sunlight fade. It was indeed very peaceful. I Found God today in a peaceful twilight.

Enjoying Serenity

It has been a very long time since we have been to the cabin. As the weather gets warmer and our schedule lightens, we have been wanting to get back up there. We did have one attempt earlier this week, however my mom just wasn’t feeling up to it. This morning everyone was enthusiastic, so […]

Change of Scenery

It was a very warm day today and we have been going a little stir crazy, so I suggested a drive. We ended up in our favorite park. The last time we went there, we found a small handicapped parking lot off the beaten path and decided to go there. When we arrived, there was […]

NASA Overload

In 1989, my dad published the first edition of his text book, “Introduction to Space: The Science of Space Flight”. At that time he was teaching at the local college and was unable to find an adequate text book on the topic. So he wrote his own and taught the course. He updated the book […]
