This morning I opened my Active Rain home page, to discover that I had a direct contact message.  For those of you unaware, a "direct contact" is kind of AR's version of an "email"... someone wanted to send me a message, but didn't want to post it on my blog.

Don't be afraid of change, rather learn to embrace it.  It's always a challenge, sometimes more than others. Sometimes change is easy to understand, sometimes it's difficult.  But regardless of whethe...

Forgive me father, for I have sinned.  It has been five days since my last blog post. I accuse myself of having entered the doldrums, neigh, the horse latitudes of blogging.  What led you to this sin, my son? Oh, I don't know, I've been guilty of the sin of sloth... laziness... lack-of-motivation...

There's not much else that could bring me such joy, as my 8-week old grandson, sleeping blissfully on my chest. Ahh the life of a grandparent, listening to the rhythmic breathing of one's own progeny in your arms, sleeping the sleep of the innocent. aaaahhh... little Leo, you're the picture of pe...
