    When Ernie and I were first married, a spider in the shower would send me squealing for someone to hunt down the intruder and eradicate its presence.
    After nearly 41 years of marriage and our morning routine where he leaves a good hour before me, I have had to suck it up and fight my own battles against arachnids.
    I’m not happy about it. In fact, most mornings when I hit the shower my eyes have barely opened. A creepy crawly does not put me in a tickled-pink kind of place.
    This week of meeting-my-fears head on began Sunday afternoon.

  • Longest days, gardens and Hilltop music

    When these words are in print, the longest day will have passed and the shorter days will have begun. Often we hear folks say, “After the Fourth summer is gone.”
    Maybe that is a bit of exaggeration, after all we still have Dog Days coming up, but we do know summer has passed its apex when the explosion of rockets and fire streamers die down.

  • The monk and the tiger...a lesson for us all

    Mindfulness is something far too many of us neglect to practice.
    I personally see my neglect of practice manifest itself in a number of undesirable ways. My blood is quick to boil when a slow-moving vehicle pulls out in front of me, regardless of whether or not I’m in a hurry.
    I get far too angry over situations that are out of my control such as an election, or some idiot talking trash on an online game. Sometimes I lash out at friends or loved ones over situations that aren’t really worth all the fuss. I take things too personally.
