The Hot Seat

Chair on a bridge

This chair was abandoned on a bridge near my house and I thought of the Pull up a Seat Photo Challenge (2020 Week 12) when I saw it. It’s an interesting setting with all of the metal bars on the bridge; so many lines and shadows! Normally that bridge is open during the day for […]

These seats are/were located in the small (and beautiful) town of Buena Vista, in Colorado. We were lucky to have three months ‘without‘ snow when we lived high in the Rocky Mountains, so taking […]

Go With the Flow

Late last night, as I pondered what to write about in my next post, the question “what are you trying to accomplish here?” came to mind. I thought about how my blog started—how I wanted to share the story of my recovery, and offer words of “hope” to other people who were still suffering—and then […]
