Chasing Tribulation, or How I Got Bucked Off My Treadmill

  Most of you understand bucking. Lots of horse folks know what it’s like to look up from the ground wondering, “What happened? The first step toward finding contentment is awareness. Hard landings usually get our attention. I walk on the treadmill every day without incident. Until last Monday. One moment I was upright and the next I lay crumpled

The Doer of Good

  There isn’t enough time to do all I want or read every wonderful word composed by great minds and hearts. I’m up to my second rib in a new manuscript, working to say more with fewer words.

“Drinking from my Saucer” – Perfectly Simple Prayer of Gratitude

An elderly man in a motorized chair sat at the head of the Thanksgiving table. Contentment wasn’t a gift he’d enjoyed in the first eighty-four years of life and gratitude was not his usual perspective on the world. He honestly could do almost anything.
