My Granddaddy once said that the park is a great place to learn! Now at that time, I was just a kid and didn't quite know what he meant by that, but now that I'm older, and now I think I have an idea of what he meant... When I was younger I played at the park and had a lot of fun. During these days full of play, I'm sure I learned a lot: like teamwork, cooperation, taking turns, and much, much more...

My family and I have just been through a very trying time. We moved! Anybody that has ever moved a family of 7 and a family dog, you know what I'm talking about!

I’m sitting at my desk while a carpenter hammers up rows of shelves and builds drawers between perfectly spaced bars that have been measured out in my closet. Every time the hammer comes down my writing concentration is broken and after awhile I give up and move off to another room. Falling onto the couch next to a pile of unread books, I lift my small dog up next to…Continue
