No matter how many excuses we give, it’s still shameful what we’re “not” doing for the sake of our children’s future. Look deep into this young man’s eyes. What might you see?          Baffled? Bewildered? Sadness? Forlorn? Confusion? Flustered? Disconcerted? At a loss for words? Confounded? Put out? Embarrassed? Entangled”  How about […]

Winter is a starkly beautiful season. With frosty mornings, bright crisp days, and powdery snow it is easy to see how it has inspired poets throughout history to claim their righteous glow.  Please allow me to give it a try.
