    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. ...

    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...

    Today I can hear the dog-day cicadas outside my

    window as I 'work' in the (climate controlled) office. Their synchronous buzzing crescendos drown out the dull electrical hum of the fluorescent lighting and computers and I'm momentarily transported to the sun speckled canopy of my favorite old maple. My own private slice of...

    February 9th 2009 Sounds

    The tinkling of melting crushed ice in a cocktail glass; the whirr of the fan in the pc; fat freakish February rain drops tapping away at the skylights above me; the oh too audible clicking of the keys on the board before me; the weather channel announcing its weather on the 8's...

    Sound Check

    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. ...

    Sounds

    I love the simple sounds of life...like music to my ears Rain falling, thunder, lightening cracking wind blowing through the trees, birds chirping and singing, kids playing and laughing in the distance Just sitting back and really listening to the sounds around is so calming...

    Sounds of Life

    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.

    Sounds Of Summer

    Waves crashing on the shore. My daughter and her friends laughing, giggling, screaming and chatting endlessly as they splash about in the water.Small children digging holes and communicating to each other how they are going to build their sandcastle and a moat.Radios playing...

    A Nod to Nancy Drew

    Nancy, you mentioned last week that you'd heard the song of the red wing.  At first, I figured you must have been mistaken, for springtime seemed as far off as a distant shore.  Yet, in the fading light of Saturday's gloom, I found myself high on a ridge in the...

    Relationships are never 50-50. If you go into a marriage thinking everything is 50-50 you are doomed to fail. There will be times in life when the marriage will be 80-20 or 60-40...

    Sometimes I feel alone or just not myself and for every mood I feel there is a song for it. Music makes me feel good about myself that no other human being can make feel.
