    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...

    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. ...

    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. ...
