Maybe because we are more isolated, generally the happiest we’ve ever -EVER- been, and self-contained now more than ever before. My compulsion to share with the world seems greatly diminished. But Tamara has written lots of loving […]

  • Just a Little Green

    I recently spent an afternoon clearing the garden of the delicious and lush greenery we had managed to grow this summer.

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.
