As I sit facing the backwoods, I enjoy nature – a welcome respite from haunting thoughts about the dark threads of my life. Musing now; I never gave it much thought when younger. Here, in the winter of my years, it seems important. Threads we all have. Some are light a...

I saw you, because you let me.

You were right there by my side, until you let go.

You didn’t tell me, and I didn’t look back,

If you spend time enjoying nature during any season other than the middle of winter, and prefer to avoid painful sunburn as well as repel ticks, mosquitoes (or any other small insect), there are some “natural” ways to accomplish these goals. Reading about experience wi...
