Slower

To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple […]

The Doctor

July 24, 2017

I think Denver’s old Auditorium Arena held about 6,900 fans. It’s there in the late sixties and seventies that we watched Connie Hawkins and Spencer Haywood dominate like the opponents were high schoolers. But wait, a new kid arrived on the scene and the word dazzling should have been written in all caps. His name…Julius […]

Maggie

July 24, 2017

I was awakened this morning before six with a picture and words streaming one after another. The picture is of Maggie whose presence is…quite simply, stunning. The words keep coming and here’s just a few. She emanates kindness…gentleness…good humor…and class. Maggie is joyful and grateful and the light in her eyes shines like a diamond. […]

There’s a special bond between a grandmother and her first grandchild. It’s formed on day one and lasts forever and a day.

Holy Cow

My wife loves watching The Bachelorette. She watches even though Adam uses the word ‘like’ fifty times in every ninety second conversation. HELP!!! ** Rumor has it that Rachel let Adam go and it was ‘like’ the hardest thing ever!

Hindsight

July 9, 2017

Rumor has it that the terrific manager of The Colorado Rockies (Bud Black) has had second thoughts about dressing down his young pitcher in front of 48,000 fans. Nobody’s perfect and I doubt that we’ll see this again.
