I stand on the porch while my dog checks out the yard.  It’s chilly; there is a bit of rain, more dripping than falling.

The smell of wood smoke fills the air; it’s the first since cold weather ended last spring.  It smells delicious.

The warmth of my home feels especially good when Galahad and I go back inside.  There’s something about the change in temperature that makes things more enjoyable.

Now, I’m sitting on the couch.  Music plays softly as I write.

My cat, Priscilla, is into the comfort of this evening, too:  She is dozing on the cushion beside me.

I guess I would have to say that coziness is made from a mix of chilly and warm, pleasure, stillness and peace.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
