Blessings of Spring

Posted by mcm0704 on March 30, 2018 |

We are ten days into the Spring Solstice, which started on the 20th and runs until June when the summer Solstice begins. This is such a renewing time of the year when flowers start to bloom, grass gets green, and trees begin to create canopies of shade. It is also a time when people of […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on February 5, 2018 |

Did you watch the Superbowl last night? I did not, as I don’t have television reception here in my new house. I don’t even have Internet service yet, so all my online business is happening with the help of the hotspot on my iPhone. My computer has built in wi-fi, so once my office was […]

Monday Morning Mess…uh, Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on January 22, 2018 |

Mmmmm…Mmmmm…Mmmmm I do encourage a few deep Yoga breaths to calm anxieties and relieve stress before moving on to my comments about the dysfunctional government that blithely goes on their way in Washington while average Americans pay the price. At midnight Friday, the government shut down because an agreement could not be made on the proposed 2018 […]

Happy New Year

Posted by mcm0704 on January 1, 2018 |

I hope 2018 brings everyone much happiness and good health. This certainly is going to be a New Year for me as I leave this place that has been home for nearly 16 years. In so many ways this plot of land and this house has been more than a home. It was the fruition of my […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 13, 2017 |

I have had a long love affair with trees. It started when I was a child and would climb the large Elm in my backyard. Sometimes to read. Other times to just sit and be away from everything and everybody else. Often it was a refuge. And I was devastated when the people who bought […]

Friday Fun and Veteran’s Day

Posted by mcm0704 on November 10, 2017 |

First I want to acknowledge Veteran’s Day tomorrow and give a shout out to the veterans in my immediate family. My son, David, a Marine who was in Dessert Storm. My daughter, Dany, who was in the army and was lucky to avoid combat duty. My brother, Michael, who was also in the army and […]

Do We Need Assault Weapons?

Posted by mcm0704 on October 3, 2017 |

There have been 270 mass shootings in the U.S. in 2017, and now we’ve had another. The latest in Las Vegas is one of the worst in U.S. history where 59 people were killed and hundreds injured. Not much is known about the shooter, or why he did this, but what is increasingly clear is that gun control […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 29, 2017 |

The recent intense rancor on social media surrounding the actions of NFL players last weekend started me thinking about how much more productive discussions might be if we did what Native Americans did in order to establish respect between their tribe and another, as well as the white man. Some of us who grew up […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 22, 2017 |

Before getting into the horrible news from the Caribbean and Mexico, just a touchof cuteness to brighten our Friday a bit. The devastation from the three major hurricanes since Harvey hit the south coast of Texas just keeps getting worse and worse. The two small islands of Antigua and Barbuda have virtually been destroyed. Dominican Prime Minister […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on September 18, 2017 |

Before anything else, I want to share a few pictures that I took this morning. The first one is the sunrise that I saw through my bedroom window when I woke up. The picture was taken through the window, so it is not great and certainly did not capture the true beauty of the sky, […]
