“A Good Story” To me, “the farm” has always meant the farm where my mother grew up, one of 11 children. Every book I ever read that was set on a farm, and many other books as well, all took place in my imagination at my mother’s family farm and the surrounding woods. The farm seemed enormous when...
As 9/11 occurred over the weekend, I was asked by my sweetheart if I remember anything from that day 20 years ago. It’s not a subject I ever talk about, mostly because I don’t have much to say, and also because what I do have to say, won’t be what most people expect to hear (shocking, I know). I...

“Hardworking People” We are reaching that point in remodeling where we seriously question whether we will ever be done. After we finally found a plumber, we thought our worries were over and progress began briskly. Our plumber had a delightful and exceptionally competent young fellow from Kenya,...
Texas. I see the license plate all the time . . . I know it’s common for many in this area to snowbird there (or for many originally from this area to move down) . . . I know Austin sounds super chill and fun, and the rest of the state . . . not so much. I definitely know the state government is...
