    Just when I think I’m not so bad, something happens to show me that I am so bad -- bad to my rotting bones.

    There’s this person.

    For some reason I feel an intense, irrational, utterly petty competitiveness with her, even though we’re not competitors in any area whatsoever. Frankly, I don’t think she even knows who I am, but I sure know who she is.

  • Swallow Rail was the name Dad gave the farm over 30 years ago. He wanted it to be relevant, reflecting the spatial and natural qualities of his 18 acres in Western Shelby County.

    The rail of Swallow Rail comes from the two railroad tracks that flank either end of the road.
