    Coffee grinding.  Children playing.  Cheers at a sporting event.  The sounds of a race track.   The ocean hitting the shore.  A screen door slamming.  Water trickling down a rock wall.  A canoe paddle breaking through the water. ...

    The Still of the Night

    Yesterday, the cold front finally edged its way into my parts, as if it were a reminder that summer has yet to arrive.  Local on the 8's was showing overnight lows in the 40's in the last few moments of gazing at the blue glow from my bed before pressing the...

    Peaceful Tuesday Morning

    I've awoken to a glorious and peaceful winter morning.  We've been getting squalls of lake effect snow for the past several hours and there is a fresh powdery dusting blanketing the landscape, and muffling the sounds of this small town coming to life for the day. ...

    Mark It!

    The first sign of spring is the song of the redwing. I heard it here, at noon today, March 8!  They seem to be arriving with the fog.
