A Picnic They’re Still Talking About

My husband’s family gathered in Crystal Falls, MI and Green Bay, WI this weekend to celebrate the life of a remarkable woman, his Aunt Jean.  There was story-sharing and remembering–and laughter–as Aunt Joyce, Uncle Tom, and all five nieces and nephews present shared Aunt Jean stories.

Our brains are compelled to make up stories–about why and whatever.   And we do make them up…every single story.  We… Continue reading That was a bust…

February Fun, Magnificent March

We’re originals; not copies.  We are getting clues and guides and sometimes magical… Continue reading February Fun, Magnificent March
