Late Sunday morning, I was wiping the kitchen counter and thinking about what I would do with Claire that day. We were getting a late start and had not gone to church. In my left eye’s peripheral vision I noticed motion. I looked over, and there sat a little Western Screech Owl on a table […]
In Yellowstone, we stopped for lunch by the roadside using the provided wood picnic tables. This plant was our companion. Life takes root anywhere.
