The Essence of Christmas

There is a phrase that has become quite common in today’s culture when people talk about their experiences. It usually ends with something like, “…this is my truth” or “…they spoke their truth” or “…they have the right to own their truth”. Their truth…hmm…as if truth is relative […]

The Father I Know (three)

In the spring of ’81 we sold all of the cows and chickens and much of the farm equipment and officially ceased being farmers. I was not sad to see them go since I had never really liked farming; too much work for too little reward. For the […]

First Vacation (enough said)
