  • One of my favorite things about summer is my front row seat at the orchestra. The orchestra of insects, that is.  

    Late summer, when temperatures cool down enough to turn the air conditioner off and open the windows we fall asleep to the sounds of katydids, crickets and cicadas.  

    I sometimes cheat in the heat of the summer and crack the window in my office so I can hear the insects and the birds as I work at the computer or in the kitchen.

  • * This is a musing of gratitude. How thankful we are for those who realize the importance, the wonder, the purpose of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum - our community’s museum.

    * Albert Schweitzer -- “At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”

  • Dear God,

    As you know, last Sunday morning I posted the following on Facebook:

    “Dear God,

    I’m trying to control the universe as best I can, but I think I’m failing at it. It might be time for me to step aside and let you take over -- I hear you laughing! -- but I’m not sure I know how to do that, seeing as I’ve been doing this for so long.

    “So, please be patient with me and don’t smite me with boils or ugly hair.

    Last weekend, downtown Cynthiana was taken over by fans of the hit comic book and TV series, The Walking Dead. 

    People came from all over the United States to meet the creators and visit places that were featured in the very first issue. We even had our share of “Walkers,” the series’ name for their version of Zombies.
