I'm Just Saying

Mourning and missing mom

Staff Reports's picture

The mechanical sorting through my mother’s things with empty cardboard boxes and piles of newspapers scattered about her empty apartment gave me pause- the moment that strikes all of us after the death of a parent:

Is this it? Is this all there is to show for more than 92 years of life?

Finding time to play outside

There’s several good reasons to move to a rural area. No traffic, dark, quiet nights, soothing vistas of bucolic green – these probably top the list. So I’m always amazed when my fellow Carolinians fail to experience the reasons for which they claim to have moved.

A match made in heaven

It just goes to show that there’s someone for everybody.

Certainly there have been thriving relationships that baffle the world with their initial attraction and long-term success: Helena Bonham-Carter and the darkly eccentric director Tim Burton, Woody Allen and Soon Yi, a banana and mayo sandwich...

Don’t I know you?

It’s not that I place less importance on people than animals, but while I simply cannot dredge up a memory of someone I met or even knew quite well decades ago, I can somehow remember the animal in their life with laser-like precision.

Tiny houses are all the rage

If I didn’t have this farm, if I hadn’t led the life I’ve led, I would absolutely be embracing the new movement quietly sweeping through this country:
Tiny houses.

Now, many people might consider my 1,500 square foot IHOP wannabe a tiny house, but compared to these new homes, my cabin is a hulking airplane hangar.

Dead relatives abound

I’m pretty sure I don’t owe any of them money, but evidently, I’ve got dead relatives hanging out all around my house.

Cardinals, you see- not those that vote on a new pope, but rather the ones with a way cooler pompadour hairdo.
