Welcome to my site.

This is my retreat where I go after a hard day’s work of driving our nation’s highways in my semi-truck to write down my thoughts and experiences which may be of interest and assistance to others.

After decades of teaching, mothering, sewing, cooking, and vegging in a peaceful secluded village, I passed the inevitable half-century mile marker on the road of life.  Seemed like a good time to learn new things since I wasn’t ready for a rocking chair.  So I went truckin’! 

My highways, past and present, have taken me uphill and down, through sunshine and tempest, traveling sleek freeways and rugged terrain.  As I travel, I learn, grow, and achieve, mile by mile to a better me.

Flood of the Century

September 2014 is a time that will always be remembered. A hundred year flood came tearing down from the mountains of Short Creek taking the lives of three young mothers and ten children. This devastating event affected many lives. It even changed my life, for it caused me to pick up my pen and write a book.

Eye of the Beholder

Beautiful or Ugly, Strange or Familiar, Devils or Angels? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Where Is Heaven?

Heaven and hell are not so much a place as they are a state of mind.

Reality Versus Perception

Sometimes reality is opposite of popular perception

Voices from the Dust

Since time began, people have searched for treasure. Some treasures are slippery, and some are sustainable. What is your treasure? Where do you hide it?


One day I met the Plague and he told me his plans. He is out there somewhere looking for sheep and goldfish.
