My Brothers the Butchers and Me, the Clean-Up Lady

November 14, 2017

When I used to say that old nursery rhyme about the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker, I always imagined the butcher as a beefy man with a white apron and a big knife. I never imagined then that I would one day have not one, but four family members who are butchers. Let me introduce you to my three brothers, the owners of Conrath …

Going about this Business of Being

November 7, 2017

I have a sister who used to say about some thought or emotion she felt, “Oh, I don’t want to tell because then it won’t be special anymore.” I think that’s sometimes how it is for a writer. Life always talked about becomes life lived on the surface. Real experiences and nibbles of thought, when they are always and immediately displayed, have no time to …

Asher Witmer’s Review of Anything But Simple

October 16, 2017

Asher Witmer is the author of one of my favorite blogs. He is both relevant and honest in writing about his own struggles in his Christian walk and about the struggles and needs of the Church as a whole. I love that he does not contain his words within the box of a certain denomination but makes them broad enough to include everyone. I also …

The Book at the Top of the Mountain

October 10, 2017

Once upon a time, I wrote a children’s story for creative writing class. And as week followed week and year followed year, I liked the story so well I decided to publish it as a children’s book. But publishing a children’s book, I discovered, was no easy task. I scaled a high mountain, looking for an illustrator. At the tip top of the mountain, I …

The book signing will …

Anything But Simple Review and Giveaway

October 1, 2017

The latest review and giveaway for Anything But Simple was recently posted by my friend and name twin, Luci. I enjoyed reading what she had to say about me almost more than I enjoyed reading what she had to say about the book. I felt I got a glimpse of myself through someone else’s eyes, and since she has an art for writing both authentically …

Dementia Prevention OR Why I Am Reading a Chemistry Book

September 26, 2017

It’s called Exploring The World of Chemistry: From Ancient Metals to High Speed Computers, by John Hudson Tiner. It tells the story of chemistry’s development. And it’s written with the level of simplicity I need in order to (sorta) understand such complex subjects as alpha particles and spectroscopes and just why it is that inert elements have a valance of zero. Like I ever cared …
