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

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.

Larry and …

Letting the past be the past

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

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?

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

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

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 …
