The Four Passes Event

In which I spend over seven hours running 19 miles and slogging up and down far too many hills and enjoyed every minutes.

Not Just Thinking and Writing but Doing

We don’t just write a blog. We do some stuff, too!

Night Night Basket

In the light of all of the suffering and conflict in the world, the death of an old, chronically ill Spaniel isn’t very important, but it leaves a hole in our lives nonetheless.
