Everywhere I went today there was a sea of green. I had no idea there were so many shades of green, but living in Washington State, I should have guessed. And I do love green, that’s one of the reasons we moved here. It is green year round. I heard a few Irish jokes today. One funny one was: an Irishman went to a bar and had a little too much to drink. He decided to take the bus home, which really scared him. He had never driven a bus before.
A Buddhist went up to a Muslim hot dog stand in New York City. When asked what he would like, he said, “Please make me one with everything.”
Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

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.
