Postcards From the Other Side

A fuse bead I made during art at the after-school program. I really do hate fuse beads. “Kids waste a lot,” she remarks, sweeping errant beads, toy accessories and scraps of paper and crayon up with the dirt. It’s a veritable cornucopia of childhood and mess blended together as a perfect little ball of waste. […]

Rocky Mountain Sunset by Michael McPeak What happened to simplicity? It’s not that it no longer exists, simply that I’m no longer capable of grasping it. I remember times as a child, days spent lying in the grass watching clouds go by, evenings spent sitting on a porch listening to the thunder roll in and […]

Pent Up Gratitude

8 May, 2011 (14:11) | Family | No comments

When I was a child, I was too naive to appreciate her youth and vigor. I played with her knowing that she was always willing and able, always ready to go and always there because that’s the way things were. When I was a teen, I was too self-centered in my own angst to appreciate […]
