A passing anniversary

Today marks the 14th anniversary of my father’s passing. To be honest, I didn’t think a lot about it today. But then the melancholy hit this evening – the sadness of what could have been; what I’d always hoped for; what never came to pass.

Tonight, in honor of my dad, …

The gentle giant

larry

When I was a girl, there were a lot of people who stayed in our home.  After all, we owned an inn! 

While most of the people were guests, there was also a steady flow of my parents’ friends who would visit the Horse & Hound Inn during their weekends and vacations.

Letting the past be the past

LeavingThePastBehind

Last night I introduced you to several of the women I met over the weekend, including a beautiful young woman named Jen.  There was one piece of the story that I neglected to share, so tonight I’m giving you – as Paul Harvey would say – the rest of the story…

As you all know …

Waiting to exhale

leaf dipping

I made it.  Yesterday is over.  I’m grateful for all the support and love I’ve received from everyone.  It’s a reminder to me – in the past I wouldn’t usually say anything, so I wouldn’t get any support.  Just goes to show what happens when I let myself be vulnerable – amazing angels show up …

A mystery wrapped in an enigma

I know this day will come once a year. No matter how I prepare myself, every year I feel like I’ve been sucker punched once again.

Each year, I think that surely by next year the hurt will have played itself out. 12 years later that hasn’t happened yet.

This morning when I awoke, it …

Can we sing for you now?

healing-circle

The Universe certainly does move in mysterious ways…

Let me first confess that I’ve been participating in some mental torture over the last week.  Last weekend I got a really bad sunburn (remember the stinky pile of poo?)  For the first several days, the physical discomfort had all of my attention.  Once that began to …

Acting With Dignity

LaramieB

A little more than two months ago my high school alma mater, St. Johnsbury Academy, engaged me as a freelance writer. I was thrilled – not just because I could make extra income doing something I love, but also because I’m excited to give something back to the community that gave me so much when …

Someone bring back my old New Hampshire

wmur-anchors

I woke this morning to a message on Facebook that said, “Someone bring back my old New Hampshire.”  It took me a minute to figure out that she was referring to yet another local murder.

Our tiny corner of the country usually only sees a murder rarely. Something absolutely unprecedented in my memory has happened …
