  • COLUMN: Make sense through the fog

    It was foggy this morning as I walked the dog.  It wasn’t that dense, “can’t see your hand in front of your face,” kind of fog. In fact you could only tell it was there if you looked across the street, the neighbors house was just a little blurry. But then looking out a little farther, things got more indistinct, until finally everything just disappeared.

    Just the other day I was looking for something at the store and I saw a lady with a clipboard and folding file-checking things off a list as she was looking at a shelf.

On closer examination I realized she was one of those extreme coupon people and she was just checking her list.

  • COLUMN: Be firmly rooted like a tree

    Trees are really amazing creations. As they are coming out of their winter rags and putting on their spring finery, I am amazed anew at their beauty and strength. Bright greens and dark greens, some flowering, some leaving pollen all over my car, but all stretching up as if reaching for the heavens.
    Have you noticed that some trees are stronger than others? Years ago we had some flowering pears, beautiful when blooming, beautiful in shape, but they grew so fast they were easily broken by the wind. Others, like magnolias, have shallow roots that the wind can easily uproot.
