This old house



home, march 1, 2009
She was nine, he was six and I was five years younger than I am today. When we journeyed to this little place we call home. Five years of renovating, five years of building up and tearing down. Five years of making due with little, with less, five years of learning just what's best. The little, the less is we're car less and Middle Tennessee is car heavy. We walk to the store together, I get weekly rides to the grocery store, we ride the bus to church and they ride the bus to and from school, I'm here at home when the mail runs and I'm here at home, when my children get off the school bus with stories of stink bombs and agendas to be signed. We walk the dog and feed the cat, sometimes we step across the street to fish or canoe, a little ranch house with hardwood floors, a fireplace, two kids, a dog and a cat. 


Tonight I listen to a free webinar ...

Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
