  • "The Show Must Go On"

    I remember our department director, Dr. Wan, telling us, "The show must go on!" He reminded us that we could not give into terrorist, because that would be letting them "win."

    So that night, I stood in front of a crowd of other confused and befuddled college students who so politely cheered me on as I did a HORRIBLE monologue about socks and organization. And then, I watched as "the show" of my life, and the lives of everyone around me, would continue to go on, and on, and on, never really stopping for anyone or anything.

  • Sunday in Jemez Springs

    When I got home, I packed the kids up for a little road trip to one of their favorite spots we found since moving to New Mexico. We drove about 1 1/2 hours to Jemez Springs, where there is lots of culture, colorful red rock, mountains, peaceful streams, hot springs, and waterfalls. There is so much of Jemez Springs that we have left to explore and I can not wait to spend more time there. 
  • A Reading From the Book Elijah

    "As they reached the top of the mountain, Chaos fell quiet and the first snowflake fell. Death and Time stood still. A single tear fell from The Creator’s eye and from it a door of ice grew from the cold earth. As the door opened The Creator carried Chaos across it quickly. As they crossed over to The Heavens Chaos took a breath and her hair began to glow a fiery red again. She stood slowly on her feet and regained her strength and youthful glow."
