Is Summer Passing you by?

In northern Wyoming, it always feels like we have just three months of summer, June, July, and August. Well, it’s August. As far as outdoor activities and gardening are concerned, two-thirds of the season is over, and I don’t know where it went. Due to a cold spring, I planted the garden two weeks later this year than previous years, and all I’ve harvested so far is lettuce. I should be getting some sweat peas later this week, but they are generally on the way out by August. So, if you’re like me and it feels like summer is passing you by, get out and enjoy it while you can.

WRITING NOTES AND NEWS

I’ve now completed the first two novels in my new dystopian adventure series, and I’m two-thirds of the way done with the third. I know I need to stop writing long enough to start querying potential publishers, but the characters are keeping me too busy at the moment, and their stories must be told while they’re still in my head. I don’t want to give away too much, but here’s a glimpse of the inspiration for the setting of my fictional experimental community.

Preservation of the Earth

"We stand now where two roads diverge. But unlike the roads in Robert Frost's familiar poem, they are not equally fair. The road we have long been traveling is deceptively easy, a smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed, but at its end lies disaster. The other fork of the road / the one less traveled by / offers our last, our only chance to reach a destination that assures the preservation of the earth." Rachel Carson

Lovely Lamego Portugul


Lamego, Portugal is a city located in the northern part of the country. The city has many interesting things to see, but the most stunning is Our Lady of Remedies which stands above town. This Catholic Church sits atop a hill overlooking Lamego, and 686-steps lead from the town to the Sanctuary. Along the stairway are nine levels decorated with blue and white tiled friezes, sculptures, and fountains. The Sanctuary is stunning, inside and out, and is one of the main pilgrimage sites in Portugal.

July 2022 Newsletter

 Reflect on Independence Day!

June has been an interesting month in Wyoming, and I’m hoping July will be a little more boring. Yellowstone National Park and a number of gateway communities have been devastated by floods, destroying roads and bridges, and closing numerous roads. Many are once again open, but some will take months to repair. My heart goes out to all of those who have been impacted by the flooding.

The list of holidays and silly events for July is shorter than most months, but one is very important, Independence Day. The Fourth of July is the birthday of our nation. It’s the day we celebrate and enjoy the benefits of the freedom which the framers of the Declaration of Independence signed and ultimately fought for. When many of our freedoms are under direct attack and others are being insidiously degraded, please take this time to consider what it means to be free and to live in a democracy (government by the people. Rule of the majority) vs an autocracy (government with one person having unlimited power), and educate yourself on issues and how government works. Please vote in all elections, or someday that may not be an option.


July 4 - Independence Day

July 5 - National Bikini Day

July 20 - National Hot Dog Day

July 22 - Hammock Day
