I'm moving! Although some things don't turn out as expected, my plan for a website can now be detected. Thanks to the pros at Norman Design, Jeff Zmania and Lisa Wenzler, who were all so kind. I'm still settling in and moving my things but now both blogs and my book will all live like [...]
I open the door for a morning walk for the last time in Tucson with confidence that you are about to head home too, but with a confluence of emotions. I sweep away the dead leaves and twigs from the orange tree that have fallen since I swept yesterday. I want the road ahead clear [...]
I stood against the wall of the small room and listened as the head resident talked to my sister. A group of interns looked on. “Do you have any other questions?” the doctor turned to me and asked. The day before, we had exchanged a few words and after he left the room, my sister [...]

The sun's just out. We're settling in. It's 12:30pm, we made coffee in the room with cream. (Todd made it :).) I know it's late for morning coffee but we finished dinner at 11:00 pm! I'm excited for the day and sitting by the window. I opened Mom's little Bible I brought along with me [...]
I don't have many meltdowns, do I? Todd, mumbled something which I couldn't make out. I remembered my dad before a family vacation.
