• We pass by once

    “Coming soon,” words I have wanted to say for many months. After a lot of writing, rewriting, critiquing, editing and more editing, I will soon take my next book to print. I have a passion for this project that is infectious. Although other possibilities came along, I never lost my fervor for this latest book. And so, I push forward moving my words to print.

What once was a fight between men or a conflict between nat…

  • Taking back the reins

    It is interesting to see how others respond when we choose to take control and stay in our own lane. This can be a change in direction for some, undesired territory for others. You know, when the pretty pony acts more like a stubborn mule, just because we need to stand our ground. Al’s brother has grown old as Al and I have grown older. It’s true.
