Winter Is Really Here

It’s been a good year, in many ways. Weather inspires me, probably because I live in Colorado where the weather is pleasant so much of the time.

Father’s Day

There are 2 fathers who are most important in my little world. The first is, of course, my father. Sometimes when he and my brother and I are all together, I marvel at the way our hands look the same, the way my brother’s mannerisms echo my father’s, and wonder if mine do, as well. …
