I’ve debated whether I should share this or not. After all, I didn’t want to scare anyone or add to any burdens that are already being carried. But now that the danger is over, I think it’s ok to let people know what almost happened. We were almost invaded by aliens. Honest, we were. I heard […]

Next month’s Group Writing Project is Deadlines. And next month, April, starts the day after tomorrow. We still have seven openings. A week’s worth of empty days. That’s okay – when the going gets tough, the Ricochetti get going. I know I can count on seven more Ricochet members to volunteer to take one of the […]

Yup. March is winding down. Three days left before the deadline for our April series . . .  Deadlines. As of today, we have a dozen slots still open. So, we are looking for any Ricochetti willing to contribute a conversation about deadlines. What is the monthly Group Writing project? It is an attempt to […]

Have you seen the wind? No, not really. No one sees the wind. We see only the things it moves. The leaves sway because the wind has touched them, so we know it is passing our way. The chimes ring and we know they do not ring without being acted upon. We feel the wind’s […]

It’s fascinating to me the way certain musicians and composers can so easily and perfectly evoke the sound and feel of things in nature. Claude Debussy was a master at this, but there were others who could do this, too, without the composition actually being about the natural phenomenon they are evoking. I’m thinking, specifically, […]

March is rapidly approaching its end, and with it the deadline to sign up for the April Group Writing project. Which is kind of ironic, because April’s theme is Deadlines. We stand a very good chance of missing the deadline to fill the month, because there are still 17 openings. What is the monthly Group […]

1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Christianity understands God as one, in three persons (The Holy Trinity).  These are the Father, the […]

I cruise through life content most of the time. Occasionally, though, a peculiar convergence of sunshine, azure sky, gentle breeze, and felicitous song will deepen that outlook. For a few savory minutes, the contentedness mellows into a sense of serene pleasure. All the parts of my world have blended into a lovely tune.  This happy confluence of elements occurred more than […]

Yep. That is because Deadlines is our April Group Writing theme. We need a month full of deadlines. Or rather conversations about deadlines from the Ricochetti. That is you. Right now we have eight of our deadline date filled. Which leaves 22 open for someone (maybe you?) to fill. It is not hard, honest. Pick a […]

“Cool calculation would make it appear that the attempt to take Valdivia is madness. This is one reason why the Spaniards will hardly believe us in earnest, even when we commence. And you will see that a bold onset, and a little perseverance afterwards, will give a complete triumph.” – Thomas, Lord Cochrane, 10th Earl […]

We are halfway through March so it is time to start recruiting for April’s Group Writing project. For the uninitiated, newcomers, and terminally unobservant, every month we do a writing project on Ricochet. We seek a daily conversation on that theme, from a different Ricochet member. On a good month we will get a contribution […]

Wind is fickle. Wind comes and goes as it pleases, and seems subject to no laws outside of those crafted by The Great Murphy. Populated areas can go days with still air, and be subjected to gale force winds at other times. Which makes it all the more surprising that people ever thought harnessing wind […]

A question you don’t want to get when you are at the office : “Joe, was there a tree on the garage when you left for work?”   Other questions have been :      “Joe, how do you shut off water to the whole house?”        “Joe, where is the really big crowbar?”   […]

The wind is rather fascinating as far as natural phenomena go. Sometimes the wind just moves a few dead leaves around and sometimes it takes a few shingles off your roof. When the wind gets it together to actually do something nice for you, that’s called a windfall. Those don’t happen very often. Sometimes you […]
