Moon Shadows on the Path

Moon Shadows on the Path

  Chapter 28 The rain stopped and I turned off my windshield wipers. About halfway to Myra’s home, I realized no one in the whole world knew where I was and that was not a good thing. I speed-dialed Cade but got no answer, only his voice mail. Leaving a message, I told him where […]

Craziness Is Contagious

Craziness Is Contagious

I’ve never seen a squirrel behave like the little fellow in my front yard this morning. Maybe he was from this year’s crop of new squirrels and was just realizing what fun it is to be alive.

Is it the realization that nature is in charge, and whether the rain […]
