Over the long weekend my family decided to drive up and see other family in a nearby town.

Forward Never Back

FORWARD. Arrows are released to fly forward toward the bullseye. Runners advance to the finish line forward. The battle of an army is won advancing forward toward the enemy. The waves of the sea change the shore by breaking forward onto the sand. We even spring forward from a long winter. Nothing is usually gained… Continue reading Forward Never Back

Look Closer

I look around our yard and see all of the green. Spring and summer are my favorite times of the year.
