Counry Road in Springtime

I remember the romantic words of John Denver’s “Country Road”, but this time of year the county road on the back side of the mountain is a muddy road! It is like the road of life we travel. It is good to watch out for and not get mired in the muddy spots.

Vieing for the Flock

Usually there is one dominant male turkey that guards his flock of females during mating season, but recently I observed two males strutting their stuff behind the females. My thoughts turned to humans that vie for attention, as well as those that shun th

Where Did the Bench Go

Recently when we visited the top of the mountain, my wife thought the bench was missing. Eventually found the right spot and dug into the snow; it was there out of sight. It pays to look.

Floating Free

I watched the tiny iceburg floating with the current, having broken free in the warm spring air. It was on a short adventure until it returned to being one with the water. It is a wonderful time of year for our ideas to break free from dreams to realities
