The Power of Perspective.

This month is my five year anniversary from breast cancer. Certainly an experience I never prepared for, expected, or initially welcomed. At the moment of the diagnosis I had a very clear choice since either way this “cancer thing” was happenin...

Many times inspiration comes at the most peculiar times… I was mowing our pasture today and love the straight lines of the tractor carefully arching over the hills in an organized way. As I looked at my work I noticed my efforts were unsuccessful. I saw random jigs and...
