Both of the pictures below were taken, with my phone, within 0.6 miles of my front door, within the past week. We are getting a bit of rain and wind, so those leaves will be on the ground soon. But they sure are pretty when they are on the trees. More

You might remember from my 1st MAIN FEED post what prompted it. Well, not 15 minutes ago, the city cops were stopping traffic and making people turn around—on the overpass. I’m glad I was driving my 200S, and not the Ram 1500! Just imagine what a semi driver would have to do. The more I’m […]

Today at Toad Hall it has been super windy. My son was able to get a kite up into the air, no mean feat considering our very tree covered property. While the kite was flying, it attracted the attention of an eagle which flew over to check out the competition. In spite of his mother […]

If you are gearing up for Thanksgiving travel, you may want to add a few layers to your suitcase attire. There is an unusually dramatic weather pattern headed from the Plains to the Northeast that will dramatically change the forecast very quickly, beginning this weekend. This could include high winds and possibly, snow. If you […]

March is over, and with it the “Winds’ project. We had 30 entries this month from 29 different contributors. It proved a fascinating array of conversations on different aspects of winds — real to metaphorical. None made the Main Feed this month, but that is okay.  More

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 […]

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, […]

Deadfall Sharp breeze from the east today more sticks to haul away the winds of winter left their mark twigs, sticks, branches on the yard a limb down in the grove every year the winds of winter break off the deadwood every spring I haul it away   Every tree feels the rush until one […]

A brief re-telling of the Annunciation A raw March wind blows in from the sea, combing the grasses on the dunes, tumbling over the warmth still left in the sand from a sun now long set, dispersing its stony, desert smell. More

I have loved using Scholastic News in my classroom. I’ve also taught with The Weekly Reader, or Time for Kids. However, in the last five or six years, I’ve increasingly found myself reading the cover article, and then putting the entire packet of magazines into the recycling bin. Why? Indoctrination, PC, Science-y Nonsense… The latest […]

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 […]

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?” “Joe, you need a bigger […]

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 […]

Soaring like a gentle silhouette against the sky, it glides and dips, gracefully making the wind its partner. Its splayed wings are huge, allowing it to linger effortlessly high above. As it circles, it is beautiful. I find myself leaning from one side to the other as I follow its flight. After it lands, I […]
