I’ve often taken great pleasure walking the hills another man owned but rarely visited. A public park really belongs to me alone and no one else for the moments I sit in solitude by the water’s edge and enjoy the slanting evening light.

January Sunshine

All the talk on the news today is the blizzard of historic proportions that is about to hit the east coast but this morning here in Michigan the sky is clear and the sun is shining. The snow storm passed south of us last night and we are cheerily about our business.

This morning on my desk in front of me is a handwritten note written on a small yellow legal pad.
Our third-born is a son …
