A season of transitions

Change is in the air. There is no denying it. Here in north Louisiana, the temperatures and humidity have slipped out of the triple digits and settled in the 90s. And if you put your ear to the ground, that sound you will hear is

I ran today

I did not run far. And I certainly did not run fast. But running fast and far was not the point today. The point was that I ran today. I ran with my son, Hadley, because it was important to me. I told Hadley on

It’s not just a game

I wouldn’t call myself a poet. It’s just not the kind of storytelling I like. But I was inspired to sit down and write this haiku. I call it “T-Ball Practice”: Green grass and good friends, Hit, run, catch, throw, run again. Don’t pick the
