You have to be creative to “make it” here.  Learning to; unfreeze plumbing pipes, get out of 18 inches of mud, drive up or down an icy hill with a rear wheel drive car, get lost and then found, has kept me here, and I am happy. The natural highs are plentiful and the neighbors are terrific, they come with a tractor to pull you out of that mud.

My sister began playing the banjo awhile ago and I decided to take up the viola because bluegrass music uses a lot of strings.  I wanted to...

Restrictions have been imposed to slow the contagion. Some of us are fortunate enough to simply accept the new rules with only mild inconvenience-- or at least we have times during the day when we aren’t feeling afraid or angry or sorry for ourselves. In my work as a coach I help people with big responsibilities find time for their own pursuits. Now suddenly many of us have a LOT more time than we expected. What have you always wanted to learn or create or attempt? What’s on your Maybe Someday list?
