Segue

July 18, 2017

Segue: to make a transition without interruption from one activity, topic, scene, or part to another (Merriam Webster online dictionary) I learned this word only within the last couple of years. From the beginning, I loved it. What other word describes transition with such finesse? I segue from Deer Lake, Ontario, to Sheldon, Wisconsin. I segue from wiggly brown bodies: …to wiggly white ones. From …

Moose Hunt

July 11, 2017

An unsuccessful fishing trip turned moose hunt when someone spotted three moose over near the shore. Our laughter and talking stilled immediately and, following whispered directions, we traded places in the boat and gave Bruce the spot in the front, where he crouched, gun ready. Johnny sped up, heading straight toward the moose, which everyone had seen by now but me. There were three of …

Happy Canada Day! From Deer Lake, Ontario

July 4, 2017

So while all my American friends are celebrating the Fourth of July, I am in Canada. And my Canadian friends, instead of celebrating Independence Day on the 4th, celebrate Canada Day on the 1st. July 1st was the date my little sister and I flew into Deer Lake, Ontario. What have we been doing the last few days? Walking the beach sometimes. Enjoying the sunsets …

Mom and Sons

June 27, 2017

I love these photos of Mom beside her tall, muscular sons. They do grow up, don’t they? And because I love them, I’ll throw in a few other photos from our Sunday afternoon drive. Last week was summer Bible school at our church, packed full with teaching wiggly little human beings about Jesus and all the preparation which that entails. This week, Elizabeth and I …

A Letter to You

June 20, 2017

Lucinda Miller - Anything But Simple from Jonny Stoll on Vimeo.

Dear World, You look so big and overwhelming to me right now. Some days I feel like I sit at the very top of you with power to grab and swing you by your tail, toss you over my shoulder, and ride. Other days I just want to sit very small, cold, and white in a corner, like a ghost, and say nothing and do …

We Call It Family

June 13, 2017

Happy Tuesday! And what a beautiful Tuesday it is. That’s me above, peering into a display case in the Rusk County Community Library, shelves of books mirrored in the background. I came here in search of internet, since our internet at home is down and I have business to attend to. Important Business. (Clears throat and looks important.) I promise you I am not here …

Go Pick a Rock

June 6, 2017

I’ve been moping around a lot lately. And by that, I don’t mean I’ve been wallowing in the depths of despair. Something much shallower than that. Worrying and wasting time, mostly. I’ll be honest and say that there is nothing on earth that should be wrong with me. I am living one of the most fulfilling and exciting times of my life. I am at …

Blessed Is She that Believes

May 30, 2017

Sometimes, when I find a verse I especially like during my personal devotions, or if I come across a quote I want to remember, I write it on an index card. Then the index card usually floats around on the top of my desk for awhile before I stick it in a desk drawer with a pile of others. On this beautiful cold morning, the …

Nickels and Dimes Times

May 23, 2017

I woke up this morning with the line of a song running through my mind. “These are the times of nickels and dimes and love.” Just a single line, and no more. I like it because it makes me think of my family. Of simple things, happy memories. Not that we ever actually had to subsist on nickels and dimes. But I think Dad and …
