Death has always come easy to me and I suspect several reasons that is true. I didn’t have this perspective in the beginning but while this all may seem strange to a great many,  as I grew I viewed life as no more than a transition period, a stepping off place; a place where we learn to be closer to […]

One day thru the primeval wood A calf walked home, as good calves should, But made a trail all bent askew, A crooked trail, as all calves do.
