Winter Solstice

Homer’s Odyssey

Remembering Homer’s Odyssey and the “Rosy fingers of Dawn” I reflected how lucky to be free, healthy; to have enough dough, focus on goals, and know today is the Winter Solstice.


Looking East, the incredible golden sunrise reflected by the water was ever-changing and beautiful. How lucky to be alive, have eyes to see, and legs to walk. How little we really need!

September 2023

The local weather people are predicting serious cold (for here in Gulf Coast Texas), persisting through the holiday weekend.

I have winter clothes, and time. Bring on the cold. I’m training for September 2023.
