Somebody this morning was talking about an unusual miracle witnessed by countless people. I believe, but I also believe in everyday miracles I mostly take for granted. When I think of almost any bodily system functioning, I am in awe of the delicate balances needed to sustain life. If one hormone stops doing its job or the pH balance gets out of whack, or if the heart rhythm is disturbed, or the kidneys don’t filter as they should, or the liver…how it all works together is a miracle. And conception: imagine two cells out of the millions of possibilities coming together to create a unique me. If it were another combination would I be a different person? And seeds: how can a seed that has lain dormant for decades still remember who it is? And what a miracle of nature it is for birds migrating thousands of miles to return to the exact lake where they were reared! The miracles all around are shouting for us to notice and appreciate. I want to do more of that.

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
