    Above The Clouds

    I have a little shelf on the driver's door of the bus.  So I adhere portable speakers with velcro and play my MP3 after I drop off the kids.  The school is about 25 minutes from my house so for that space of time, I don't know, I lift off, especially because I know no one can...

    Mockingbirds

    The little fellows are back and full throated right now.  In my neighborhood,  every block or so has their very own fine feathered lothario.  Ours likes to perch on the utility pole right near my bedroom window.   He greets me as I pull into the driveway in the mornings...

    Signifiers

    There are tiny buds sprouting on the undergrowth in the woods around here.   This is unbelievable.   Its February, for heaven's sake!  I had the occasion to hang out next to a wooded thicket yesterday since I was early again for my first bus stop.   I'm often there at...

    Its All Well And Good

    But sometimes I think I'm too damned easy. Case in point.... I was really really depressed.  I often am at this time of the school year, despite the fact that I am beyond sick of driving the bus, I get the blues at the thought of no kids for three months....But I forgot to...

    Caught A Long Wind

    I have to be honest, I've listened to this song many times, and never felt the need to sing it.  That's unusual for me, because if I like song enough to play it often, I'll usually bellow along with it at some point or another.  This girl soars so high, listening to her is...
