Windstorm


I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do. ~Willa Cather

Footnote: This is a tree that fell outside my office during the PNW Storm that hit late Dec. 14th. I was one of the lucky ones who had power. Many people I know are still without it.

His name is 'Today'


We are guilty of many errors and many faults but our worst crime is abandoning the children, neglecting the fountain of life. Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot. Right now is the time his bones are being formed, his blood is being made, and his senses are being developed. To him we cannot answer 'Tomorrow.' His name is 'Today’. ~Gabriela Mistral
