“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” ― Helen Keller

Kel Tec
Hubby, my hero, can leap fences with a single bound (on a good day), can fuel a tractor from a jug (if he parks the truck close), can give you a ride in his Chevrolet and wears a gun on his hip.  Yep, my kind of man!

Shush, don't tell him I took his picture.  God love him...he has to put up with me!!!!

A Grain of Sand

A grain of sand
is such a bother
between my shells 
like a wayward child
you are coated with love

You leave
crafted with layers
of beauty
it all
is just
a grain of sand

Mother for Magpie Tales

with Tess Kincaid

Mother knew 
she would never see
the twenty-first century  
she stated the fact 
and made it so
Take care of things
she said
her last wish 
tethered me
to her dreams
not mine
