    Another New Year

         New Year's eve is a great time to feel sentimental about things... particularly if you've been around a while.    It's when you wonder if you're still gonna fit into a fast-changing world.  It's when you decide if you'll get drunk, or make a pot of coffee and curl up...

    People Wonder About Manorkill

         Manorkill is a place.  It is a place in the mountains where my mother, father, grandparents, and ancestors back to the early 1800's are buried.  It is where I'll presumably be buried one day too.      I don't know why this place in the Catskills was named Manorkill...

    Lately I've seen so many posts on EP by people

    who say that they are proud to be White, Black, Asian, Latino etc. Then I've read some that say they find it difficult to like other races and some other very hurtful sentiments. What I can't seem to understand is why the need to say you're proud in the first place? Was there...

    Rose Colored Glasses

    Some Stories Change and Need to Be Erased

    What is a friend? Is a friend someone who you should give grace even when they cannot understand? I do think a friend is someone you make space for and care about even when they can longer have you in the front row of their life, so to speak. I have erased the original story...

    I am not a party person.

    . I worked at a music festival yesterday and even though I only worked for 4 hours with the remainder of the day to watch bands and drink up it didn't interest me.. I was happy to leave early, grab a coffee and head home.

    Society is judgmental.

    You Don't Have To Be

    I've learned you don't have to be a dreamer or a misfit to understand just how many wonderful things, people, and creation there is in the world to be savored and enjoyed without having to look very far. I wish I understood depression, but I don't.
