An Oldie But A Goodie

She doesn’t have a name yet, but I know it will come.

A 2002 Fleetwood Triumph who I am starting to transform into my sanctuary. A place of peace and rest, surrounded by trees and a view toward the ocean. She looks like a typical RV on the inside now, but before too long, she will be my home.

Gone for a Long While

It’s been a long time since I’ve touched this space.  One event after another keeping me occupied elsewhere, a lack in confidence, my mother dying, friends dying, COVID… all things that typically push me to write but I refused and kept everything inside.

I continue to move toward a more minimalist lifestyle so I’m renovating an old RV.  Nope, never done that before but there’s a first time for everything.  I’ll probably create a new blog for updates on that.

A proud moment is being a part of a new book coming out soon.  More to come on that!

I’ve missed this place and all of you out here.

Dirt

Feeling this today, thought it was worth a repeat…

Rio McKee

He called her dirt

more often than not.

Intent on crushing

an already broken spirit.

Twisting his savagery

she breathed new meaning.

Dirt she was,

full of living things.

Without which

nothing could grow.

Able to give birth

to new life in time.

That from which God

molded and shaped her.

That to which

she would one day return.
