Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.

A rule of thumb, when making a change: do the new behaviour for 21 days.   Apparently, it takes that timeline to create a new habit.   Hmmm....In my area, the "stay home/social distance" government edicts occurred on March 12th.   First response: fear.   That usually brings out the Crab in  us......

Change means we have to shift around our established thought patterns, have to let go of this idea that we are somehow in charge.   Pretty scary.   Letting go is not easy.   Easier to try to stuff the past into the future, while we are still mired in the present.  Change.   It will always force u...

Spring is erupting all around us.   It's a time that makes us restless, just like all the other animals encountering sun and light and warmth.   We want to get up and at it.   Stay home/social distance is still the mantra in my area.   So, yes, in my seaside region, we are all tied up at the dock...

 This clump of violet blue flowering grass has become a favorite plant in "Dad's Garden" at our rural home in Camas, Washington.
