I’ve enjoyed the frost, I’ve enjoyed the snow, I’ve enjoyed the dry, cold days, and I’ve even enjoyed (to a degree) the rain, because I know it is oh-so-necessary for our emerald vistas, but… I’m done.
Bring on spring.
Bring on daffodils.
Bring on Lenten roses…
I’m ready. Ready for longer days and rays of sunshine that burst forth from banks of dark clouds.
Ready for greening pastures.

So we’re back to playing all your favorites! Chosen carefully so that the radio program is a place of respite from a hard days work; office, job site, or home, [More]

Words, which usually come so easily to me, are difficult these days.
More precisely, jovial, uplifting, “don’t worry, be happy” words, come less freely in a state of grief, but it doesn’t mean they are not there, it just means they are slower to rise to the surface.
So instead of me trying to wrap up 2017 and launch 2018, I’m going to give you my niece, Charisa’s, Instagram post. It’s the voice of youth, of love, of hope, of unbridled optimism for the future:
