GRASPING AT THE SMOKE OF 9/11

Briefly on 9/11, the world was one. Might we have held on to the oneness of 9/11? Politically and socially, perhaps. Emotionally and spiritually, that is more difficult.

THE EYE OF THE STORM

Hurricane Irene hurled some spectacular clouds all over the heartland. We are happy to be outside of the danger zone and grateful for the sky show.

Cats and dogs, mice and cats, early risers and night owls ... who really rules the world?

This year, 2011, broke the all time record for snowfall in one season here in North East Ohio. Here are some highlights of the big snows of 2010 and 2011.
