Red. The color of fire and blood, of intensity, passion, desire and love. Maybe that’s it. Maybe so many people are worn out by the five months we’ve been through that there’s no passion. No intensity. Maybe that’s the answer. Maybe it’s time to put on our pants and get to work. That’s what the […]


Confusion. I got excited. Our governor said the he and his wife were going on a three day fast using those days to pray and reflect. Nothing else seems to be working against the virus. I thought it was a pretty good idea. Prayer and fasting doesn’t require organized religion. Or, if you prefer, it […]


As colorful as possible. A Facebook and Instagram friend is going to be sure that I’m trolling her with this picture. I’m not. But, she doesn’t know me that well.

Yes. Great. I’ve dreamed of pictures this big on Storyteller. I never thought I’d live to see the day when my dream became reality. It’s sort of my M.O.. I have to be dragged kicking and screaming into some new world. When I get there I grumble. After a time, I think “this isn’t so […]
