Follow Winter Garden     As this year comes to a close, I awake to a winter storm, which has blanketed the yard with snow. Whatever shreds of greenery remained, will surely surrender today.  Surveying the outside world, from the comfort of the house, I pause for a minute, switching my...

Follow Does one day of beauty have value?     Recently, while in Florida, my former neighbor’s gardenia bush, only offered me one gardenia, while I was in town.  I gladly brought the one bloom home, but a friend was coming over for a bite to eat, and I was in...
