Growing Up In Kansas

Our home growing up. 1615 Brainard Dr., Wichita, KS

An old, red brick house

Sitting small on scrabbley grass

It was home to me


Source Of All Blessings

 

You bless us with time

to reconnect to self, family,

Friends, purpose, and meaning.

 

May I fill this lacuna

with memories, reflections, insight

love, generosity, and renewed commitment

to spending more of my life

doing what makes a positive, generative difference

and less doing what is wasteful or detrimental.

 

Thanks be, blessed be, simply be.*
