Wind Therapy: Road to the Ozarks

 

TravelEminence, MO – I have landed in the Ozarks, in a little town called Eminence, Missouri.  This area is known for it’s tourism bringing thousands of visitors per year to take part in river excursions, horse trial rides, and beautiful mountain road for the avid biker.

That’s why I’m here.

I’ve landed at the River’s Edge Resort that sits on the Jack’s Fork of the Current River.  It’s breath-taking.  My quarters are in a rustic old motel that fronts the river, wth a balcony that stares out at the beautiful trees and the flowing waters of the river.

On Being a Widow

 

CommentaryClarksville, TN – If your marriage has been happy, as ours was for the 23 years we were together, the idea of being a widow is not one you ever want to encounter.

My husband’s health had been deteriorating for 12 years but death was not something we considered an immediate possibility. Life had another scenario in mind so on February 1st, I became a widow.

Although we had discussed what arrangements my husband wanted at his death, I had not fully comprehended what was facing me.

Alley Poet’s Pen: For Rent – Home

 

Alley Poet's PenNashville, TN – For Rent: I saw the photo of the little cottage house kitchen flashing at me from the screen of my Ipad. It had a warmth I could feel from its vintage 1947 age, but was renovated smartly with granite counters and white painted cabinets.

There was a window above the sink that looked out to a yard (always a rule for every house I’ve ever lived in) with streams of light shining in, and it was there I could see the tree. Thick, old, and jutting up grandly, ignoring the busy road with cars gliding by frequently, and casting shade on the “tear-down-turned modern house” that was going up next door.

Emergency Packing: You Never Know When You’ll Need It

 

EmergencyClarksville, TN – It can happen to anyone—a call in the night that a friend or family member has been in an accident and is on the way to the hospital; a two-day scheduled surgery that turns into a major stay in the intensive care unit; or some other emergency that requires your absence from home for a week or more.

Needing to pack when you are under intense stress is a recipe for forgetting some essential that you just couldn’t get on your list at the last minute.

You can forget and leave a lot of things behind when packing in a hurry.

Alley Poet’s Pen: Winds of Change – An “Identity Theft” in the Making

 

Alley Poet's PenNashville, TN – Did you ever have the dream where you discover there are other rooms in your house that you knew nothing about? This month marks my third anniversary in Nashville, and I feel a bit like I’ve been living in those “other rooms” for three full years. They are foreign and yet increasingly familiar the longer I stay in the south.

They say Nashville is a “five-year town,” but that’s for songwriters and artists looking to sign a deal. Many musicians mark each year in Music City as a reflective milestone, marking the highs and lows, wins and losses, in a tough, and often unforgiving town. To be honest, I never thought Nashville would even be a six-month town. You see, I never expected to actually live here.
