The Still of the Fall

There is nothing as pleasant, No nothing at all, than to sit and be quiet in the still of the fall. To sit, to be quiet and maybe just draw, is what I like to do in the still of the fall. The words, they fall silent, as good words should be, taking their cue…

Wicked Walk 10/21/2015

Let’s try this again, shall we?  My fingers got ahead of my brain yesterday and some of you darling readers were delivered an almost blank post. I’m sorry about that.  Here we go.  Again.

Here my husband and I are, heading out.  I may be the only elk hunter in history to…
