Thousand Word Thursdays #132

Just a quick phone pic on my way into the Chatham courthouse. I was struck by how the bold weeds were free to grow among the beautiful tulips. Like the weeds of society mingling with the good people in the courthouse, until tended by a master gardener.  “Flowers grow out of love and kindness.  … Continue reading Thousand Word Thursdays #132

In My Path!

Everyone in our neighbourhood received a letter last fall informing us that fibre optic cable for high-speed internet would be installed sometime in the future. We had to give consent before our lawns would be dug up for its installation. Of course, I agreed but I added to my reply email, “Please don’t dig up… Continue reading In My Path!

Good for the Soul!

She abhors shoes and would wear sandals all year long except for… Continue reading Their Shoes #54

Conquering The Road!

I looked ahead and saw  my lane ended soon. Very soon! I sped up to pass the vehicle beside me. Vrooommm! I couldn’t believe I didn’t allow plenty of time for getting my daughter to her driving test. Now, it appeared construction lay ahead. “Giselle, whatever you do on your test, don’t do what I… Continue reading Conquering The Road!
