Fire fly nights

It was a hot summer night last evening. The sky clearly bright with stars and the smell of clean humid almost fall-hinted air. In the distance small flashes of light scattered around the backyard which was filled with the smell of barbecue from my neighbors grill. The sweet smell of barbecue sauce on meat sparkedContinue reading “Fire fly nights”

Intention

I was pressed into dinner conversation the other night with a new friend in my life. He and I were sitting in a little Thai restaurant on the east side near the college campus.

As simple as a Donut.

Turning the pages of memories in my brain is a Saturday morning tradition this summer and fall as I walk the farmers markets. Headphone, playlist of Shawn McDonald and a vegetable basket in hand, I avoid the world turning introspectively. Most of my week is spent deep into our societies problems, illnesses and the work I think ofContinue reading “As simple as a Donut.”

Truth or no Truth?

If you thinkContinue reading “Is there soul in perfect?”
