Remember me?

Hi… so it’s been just over 5 1/2 years since I’ve written on this blog. I believe that warrants an apology. For those of you who still follow me, thank you!

A lot has happened since my last post. My oldest son graduated from High School and joined the Army, my daughter is now a Senior, and my youngest is in 3rd grade. The world changed quite a bit too. More mass shootings, politics that rival reality TV, and now there’s this pesky little global pandemic..

But hey… who’s keeping track right?

How are you? How are your families? Can you even believe this is happening?

Is there LIGHT at the end of the tunnel? Well, of course there is. The bigger question is, what will normal look like? Will anything change as a result of all this?

Time will tell…

One thing I know for sure, is that the universe works in mysterious ways and once again, it has many of us scratching our heads looking for whatever positive can come out of this.

Well, if we think about it, there has been some good that’s come out of all this. For starters it’s amazing the number of people that are considered essential who make minimum wage. Its pretty safe to assume parents appreciate their child’s teachers and schools a little more. Couples are walking, families are riding bikes, and who ever knew that there was a Tiger King?

There is always a positive, even in the darkest of times. It only takes an open mind to find it.

I’m ready to start writing again. My mind is a terrible thing to waste and man has my Quest for Light taken a few twists and turns.

So, let’s get back to having these chats and start back on the path we started years ago.. where will it take us?

  1. Hi Nelson, Glad to see you back in the writing mode. I have noticed some of your recent activity on Facebook. You’ve probably seen some of my posts. Still a flaming, liberal Democrat. The Masonic roller-coaster finally came into the station. Still retain membership, but pretty much inactive and only when called upon.

    On a personal note. The family is doing well. Kaye and I are in our 70s and both have gray hair and a few aches and pains. Kaye had stage one, breast cancer almost six years ago. She has been cancer free. Daughter, Gwen, got her Masters Degree and has been teaching first grade in Pheonix for the past 15 years. Grandson, Seth, graduated from high school and got a full scholarship to Arizona State. Granddaughter, Rachell, has held several jobs and takes night courses at Arizona State.

    The farm prospers and keeps me busy. Always do at least one thing every day to improve the place and never be lazy. A promise made to myself upon retirement from the Air Force in 89′. Some barnyard philosophy gained from observing cows. “If the head fits between a hole in a fence, the rest of the body will follow.” “If you want to know how fast a cow can walk, forget to close the gate.” “A cow never forgets a hole in a fence that has not been repaired.” Fell free to over-think.

    Welcome back Nelson
