  • Writing, photography part of N-D experience

    When I was little, my parents made me read and write a lot. Naturally you would think that when you make a kid do a lot of something, then when they grow up they would hate it, but no, it’s different with me.

  • Aiming our Thanksgiving

    Two or three years ago, on a Sunday afternoon, I was having lunch at one of our local restaurants with another family from our church. When the time came to pay the bill, the waiter told us that the bill for our lunch had already been paid. Someone else sitting somewhere else in the restaurant decided to do something incredibly kind and generous for which I am still very thankful. They did not even want to receive praise or thanks for doing this, so they kept their identity a secret. I found myself wanting to thank someone but had nowhere to aim my thanks.
