    Singin' In Rounds

    We were Air Force brats -- gypsies sort of  -- we lived in many different places so we never put down roots and even though we each made friends along the way all we really had that was lasting was each other.  It made us close.  It's funny how some...

    I was looking through my old laptop,

    all the photos, documents, stories I had saved and many other things that brought up so many memories from the past, good and bad.

    Did I Live In Tibet?

    I saw a show on PBS  this morning about these dwellings carved out in the side of some steep cliffs in Tibet.  It grabbed my attention because for a number of years, when I was in my thirties, I had a dream that took place in a setting exactly like...

    See Sea

    When I was a crew boat captain I loved the night shift.  It was then that most of the traveling between the dock and the rigs and platforms took place.  The hustle and bustle of the work day would give way to a peaceful calm as everybody settled down and made themselves...
