Kim and I voted in the Colorado Democratic Primary today. We didn’t stand in line, having to social distance, we didn’t have to wait for hours. It wasn’t even “election” day.

It was just another voting day in Colorado, where we are mailed ballots weeks ahead of time and...

My Mom would never have been accused of being an especially happy person. In her defense, I probably wouldn’t have been either, had I had to deal with her cultural circumstances. She lived for just 52 years and died in 1971, to give a historical perspective. Women’s Li...

Kim and I went hiking this morning. It was a beautiful Colorado summer day: flowers blooming, birds trilling, dozens of dragonflies darting overhead, when all of a sudden, I lost my footing and fell to the ground…

I wasn’t hurt, but as I laid there on the ground (becaus...

“Now is the winter of our discontent…”

Without getting into who won and why and how, it is obvious that there are a lot of pissed off people out there over this recently past election.

I am one of them. Well, maybe not pissed off, but then, I am not sure what I am. It ch...

I walked outside on Wednesday after the election, fully knowing the outcome. It was a beautiful, unseasonably warm November day in Colorado. I looked up at that perfect sky and realized, “It has not fallen.” And while I was able to go about the rest of my day, there wa...

The Cubs just won the World Series.

There is something just inherently right about that.

Here in America, in a matter of days, our citizenry will be asked to elect a new president,

We will be asked to base our decision on information, and there is NO shortage of that; we...

Excerpts from a DJT diary from a fairly close source

Less than a couple of weeks to go.  I don’t know what the big deal has been about that stupid Access Holly...
