I snapped a picture of this stone wall driving through Connecticut a few weeks ago. I’ve always been fascinated by these walls that seem to pop up out of nowhere, in the middle of the woods! So I had to do a bit of investigating. Let me share with you some of what I discovered!
I have one child who loves classical music, another who can’t get enough Christian rap, and yet another whose musical tastes cover just about the entire spectrum in between. Christian rap may be a little hard to come by on the radio in our neck of the woods, but we do have a classical station that is broadcast from about 40 miles away. The pictured radio tower is quite near our home, but it broadcasts classic hits (not quite as classy as classical). As we drive closer to this tower, we get further from the station we’re trying to listen to, and the symphony starts getting a bit fuzzy! No matter how close we get to this tower, it will never help us pick up what we’re trying to listen for. The only way to clear that fuzz in the radio is to turn around and drive the other way, toward the source. Continue reading Stay Tuned…

All we wanted was some French fries. Okay, actually McDonald’s was calling us loudly, and we were listening! We got off the highway using an exit I’d never taken before, and before long we were directed off the road that should have taken us right to our golden-arched destination. Continue reading Honor
This moss in our brick pathway is there year-round, but it really stands out in the fall and winter when many plants lose their green and go dormant for the colder months. From our towering heights as we walk by, it just adds a touch of character and texture to the visual landscape. But consider the perspective of an ant… Continue reading Directed Steps
