I Miss it

  Earlier this year my life took a fundamental change. For medical reasons I was, and still am unable to get outside. Get to the places I love.

Moments in Time

    Life is made up of small moments in time that stay with us long after the big things have gone.   The Sea The stormy sea crashes onto the beech breakers full of rage and fury being driven by the wind. This same wind rips spray from the breakers filling the air with a salty tang, at the same time more spray from the crashing waves fills the air. The noise is deafening, the constant booming roar, silence just for a...
