  • We are the many, we are not the few

    I received an email from a friend in New Jersey that contained a link to YouTube. I am rather circumspect regarding these kinds of things, but the sender usually has interesting sites for me to explore. So, I tuned in, and tuned into the message sung against a variety of backgrounds that gave historical reference to the need for people to speak out against injustice.
    As I listened to the words of the song, I felt the depth of feeling that accompanied it.

  • From dire expectation to dynamic expectancy, life is a waiting game

    One of the most difficult tasks a human being can assume is the job of learning how to wait patiently and optimistically. The cartoon figure of a father-to-be pacing nervously up and down a hospital hall while awaiting the arrival of his firstborn always brings a knowing smile. It seems the anxiety and expectation can never be exaggerated.
    We wait for babies to smile, talk, crawl and walk. We watch and wait as they grow into toddlers, preschoolers, and onward through their adolescence into a companionable adulthood. In the process, our lives entwine and sometimes entangle.

  • Misty water-colored memories are the scattered pictures of the way we were

    A neighbor and new dear friend gave Hubby Dear a marvelous book that featured tales of the rural South, as spoken by those who lived in the early years when refrigerators and stoves, washers and dryers, microwaves and toasters were non-existent.

  • St. Paul’s commemorates one-year anniversary

    This has been quite a busy a year for the small congregation at St. Paul’s by the Sea Anglican Church.
    Presiding Bishop Scott McLaughlin, Primate of the Orthodox Anglican Communion and Archbishop of the Orthodox Anglican Church, came for a visit April 16 and two children, Clara and Anna Tyson, daughters of Deacon Mac Tyson and Beth Tyson, were confirmed.

  • There still is a place for us

    Have you ever had a tune pop into your head and stay there, humming its way into your brain and psyche with relentless ardor? Have you ever been inundated with the memories the song elicited? Well, I have.
    Suddenly, without invitation, the lyrics to a poignant song from “West Side Story” burst into my consciousness and would not leave me alone. Unable to recall all the words, I Googled my way to the site that gave me the information. Then came the memories.
