My black lab is almost 13 years old.  This is what it’s like to send him outside for a relieving break:

“Galahad, go do your business.”

“Now, why am I out here?  I can’t remember.”


“Oh, that’s an interesting smell!  I’ll check it out…”


“Maybe I’m out here to find some cat poop to eat…No, that can’t be it; my boss gets mad at me when I do that.”

(“Wa wa wa wa wa.”)

“I know my boss just said something…I didn’t quite get that.”


“Maybe I’m out here to chase the cat!”

Dog and Cat

First, though, I really have to pee.  I’ll do that.”


“Hey, my boss is pleased.  I wonder if that’s why I was sent out here.  Oh well,…”

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, 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.
