Mother ducks seem to stay quite close by their babies, but not so close that the ducklings don't get a chance to spread their wings and waddle their bots. If you want to coach someone through a situation or a project or challenge, give them your unwavering support, but...

 People often use the phrase, 'at the end of the day' before launching into what we should think, 'after all is said and done'. It might sound a bit overused, but the end of the day is truly a good time to ponder. The heat has gone out of the struggles of the day and t...

In this blurred photo, you may just be able to see my grandog's nose peeping out from under the cupboard door. He does this whenever we watch sport. I think we must've shouted encouragement or outrage so many times at so many sporting events that he has learned it is b...

I now have four sinks in my garden that house a variety of plants. My latest additions hold herbs and lettuce. This isn't really me, but I have so enjoyed popping out to the garden to snip a few leaves or tease out a few sprigs of rosemary. You see, I have this habit t...

We say we would like to know where the right track is before we can begin to follow it, before we have a hope of staying on it. Do we apply for that job? Do we try to get to know that person? Do we travel to that place? Do we self-publish?

Usually, in our hearts we know...

Sometimes when clouds gather in our lives we think there is no hint of the sunshine breaking through any time soon. Yet, as you can see if you study this photo closely, the blue is not very far away. Behind the dark, ominous clouds the sky is no less bright than ever....
