When Paul declared he had experienced not so much a sign but an actual visit from a cherished pet, I looked up with a start.

You have to understand that in the 27 years we have been together Paul has only recalled two dreams and he didn’t actually recall them but leapt to his feet on the bed in a panic during the middle of them.

The Fire Chaser

It says here,” I said to Paul, pointing at the list of requirements for the Fire Chaser Express rollercoaster at Dollywood, “that riders must be a minimum 39” tall.”

Paul eyeballed me. “Not a problem.”

“And that it’s a risk if pregnant—“

“Definitely not a problem.”

Lessons from my cats (and dog)

Had I been given the good advice my friend Lynn gave after I nearly went into cardiac arrest a few days ago, I could have avoided the entire incident.

“When one of my cats stares into the fireplace,” she began, “I leave the room.”

“When two of my cats stare into the fireplace, I leave the room and close the door.”

A sacred moment

There are moments in our lives that Dr. Jim Finley, clinical psychologist and author of The Contemplative Heart, describes as ‘sacred moments of vulnerability.’ These are the moments we can actually ‘Be still and know that I am God’ and connect to our Divine indwelling- and awaken to our true self.

Sharks, like a handful (if indeed you have a hand left) of other dangers, including sky diving or snake church, are one of those things that few survive when things go wrong. You’ll never see, for example, your neighbor hobbling on crutches to the mailbox, enquire of his dilemma and be told, ‘’Chute didn’t open, can you believe it?

I don’t have a resume, really, but if I did, under ‘other talents’ I guess I’d write ‘tell jokes and ride horses.’ But after just emceeing another fashion show benefit, I realize I have another ‘gift,’ if you will:

This picture appeared on Donna’s Facebook page, reflecting how Stone felt as they larked about in the woods.

Warrior riders

It was under a distinctly maudlin sky that promised rain with raw morning temperatures that found both Donna and I tacking up our horses for a morning hack through the woods. But we were missing a third.

“Where’s Sami?” I asked.
