  • Spirit Wars

    Spirit Wars

    There is a strange combination of spirits growing within me. They seem at war with each other but in a strange way they complement each other in ways I would have never anticipated. If you knew me in my youth you know I had the reputation for being a little extreme. I was unapproachable. I […]

  • Tattoo Tales

    Tattoo Tales

    As the steam from the natural hot springs rose around us filling the small rustic shed like exhaust billowing out of an old beat-up truck on a cold winter morning, I listened with interest as my new found friend shared her regrets over the tattoos from her youth that still enveloped both of her arms […]

  • Survival Mode

    Survival Mode

    I have been learning a lot lately. I love to learn. It is something that used to come fairly easily for me but recently had been incredibly difficult. I didn’t realize how much stress was affecting me in so many areas. Stress is such a complicated thing. Some of it is really easy for us […]

  • Pandemic Portraits

    Pandemic Portraits

    It is morning in my house. The smells of coffee, ribs in the smoker, fresh spring air from the open windows and earthy lumber from my new hardwood floor mingle with faint music coming from my daughters’ room. Birds welcoming the sun, dogs barking and the scratching of marker on a masterpiece of artwork that […]

  • Hope From Hardship

    Hope From Hardship

    It’s closing in on the end of February and that means wolf season in Montana is coming to an end. This season did not go as I had anticipated. Actually, this last 5 months have not gone as I had anticipated. When does life ever go as planned? These last months have been incredibly difficult […]

    Centered

    My life is chaotic. I bet your life is chaotic too at least at times. A good life full of the best blessings usually is wrought with chaos. The two must go hand in hand. Being a naturally quiet and reserved personality, I don’t handle chaos well. It makes me anxious and distracted even when […]
