As the weather has been rather cold, for Charlotte, I went to the park this morning to catch what could possibly be my last glimpse of ice this winter. We never know. As I stood on the edge of the lake, I heard the ice cracking, popping, loosening its weak grip on the edge. The temperature was a balmy 27, heading for a high 50. Back to normal.

A few years ago, I started meditating. I kept it up for a while, but then it got lost somewhere in the mix. This morning I really felt the desire to sit quietly and simply breathe. So I did. I sat for 10 minutes, on the floor, gazing out my back window, looking at my rock garden. All sorts of gratitude bubbled up – gratitude that I could actually sit in a warm house with plenty of food in the…

Seabrook Island, SC – 1 time…

Rather than to post my favorite pictures of “2013″, or come up with some list of things, I thought that I’d just talk about the construct of time a little bit. A boy was walking along, found a shiny penny, picked it up, showed to his father and proudly exclaimed it to be his lucky penny. His father replied: In a universe in which past, present, and future came into existence all at once, complete from beginning to end, with…

It’s been raining or a couple of days now, and since it didn’t appear as if it the rain was going to stop anytime soon, I decided to become one with the rain. I donned a raincoat, put on my Neos overshoes, and headed for the stream. When I got there, it was just about as I expected.
