Tomorrow will worry about itself (because a little bird told me so)…

So this is interesting, or funny, or coincidental, or whatever. Without revealing too much personal information, these past few months have been difficult for me financially. And yesterday I was stressing about money (but what is money…just pieces of paper, right?) so I did what I often do and took a long walk with headphonesContinue reading “Tomorrow will worry about itself (because a little bird told me so)…”

A sort of churchy sort of environmental post (but not really, but maybe)

Okay. So if you’ve been to this blog before then you know a few things about me. One, of course, is that I like to ride bikes, a lot. Another is that I like to bake bread. And likely another thing you know about me–though it may not come across quite as overtly–is that myContinue reading “A sort of churchy sort of environmental post (but not really, but maybe)”

La Leña

It’s odd, I think, how autumn has sneaked up on me. It seems like it was just hot and humid and sunny (like it was for the better part of this past summer), and now today I received my annual delivery of firewood (not to mention that it is cool and damp outside). Four cords,Continue reading “La Leña”

Just Four Ingredients (OK, Five)

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Leonardo da Vinci  That beautiful loaf of bread pictured above was made with the four basic bread ingredients: flour, water, yeast, and salt. The best part is that it was made with 100% whole wheat flour. That’s the reason I added a tablespoon of vital wheat gluten to the recipeContinue reading “Just Four Ingredients (OK, Five)”

Just a quick note…

Just a quick note to say a couple things. The first is that I will be away from my computer for the next week or so, thus postings will be sporadic if any at all. But also, I just wanted to say thanks for visiting and subscribing to my meager little blog (s). Over theContinue reading “Just a quick note…”

Pictures of Water and a Few Other Things

Today it was hot, humid, and overcast. To get a breath of fresh air this evening I rode the short distance to Erie Basin Marina and drank a couple beers while I listened to free live music and snapped a few pictures. The marina is a crossroads (or more specifically, a cross-waters) of the BuffaloContinue reading “Pictures of Water and a Few Other Things”

Three Photos and a Few Words

I took the above photo just a few minutes prior to typing these words. It is about 9:00pm and without question a truly idyllic spring evening here in Western New York. It is so beautiful I felt the need to share it the best I can via this electronic media. There is not a cloudContinue reading “Three Photos and a Few Words”

Anticipation

Yup…it’s that time of year again. Time to start thinking about the victory garden. That’s a savoy cabbage plant pictured above. Future food for my son and I. In a few months I plan on eating it. No, let me rephrase that. In a few month months, after I harvest the cabbage and some cayenneContinue reading “Anticipation”

Five Quotes from Mary Oliver

Photo credit: Josh Reynolds I have to admit that I was not familiar with the poems of Mary Oliver before this morning. I am currently reading the book, Falling-Upward: Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life, by Richard Rohr, when I came across this quote that he had sited: Tell me, what is it youContinue reading “Five Quotes from Mary Oliver”
