Driving through Salinas Valley in California you become aware of the men and women working in the fields. Tractors and trailers were leading the way for dozens of workers bent over pulling the food that will nourish a nation. I find myself so grateful for my life.

This morning I found a wounded mouse in the trap set by the water lines running into the RV. I didn’t think it right for it to suffer, so I killed it. I said I was sorry as I cried – I hate having to do any think like that. Later I made breakfast for us — I was sitting… Read more »

A friend of mine called today. Her grandfather was told he has lung cancer, they have basically sent him home to die. She is heading out in a few days to see him. It is going to be hard on her I am sure. Just talking to her brings back a rush of memories. Some of them good, some of… Read more »
