  • BLOG-Founding Fathers

    founding fathers

    This Father’s Day, my men met and traded what I love about them most…their insight, their stories.

  • BLOG – I decided I would try the World Naked Bike Ride

    Bike

    Recently, I wrote an ode to my bike after a particularly fun bike ride. This past week, my bike and I got closer still, when I rode it naked through the streets of downtown Columbus.

  • BLOG— Remembering Long Pond

    Long Pond was a lake, despite its name. It hung like a particularly wet piece of laundry on the line that was Moose River. The river fed the lake, and the lake, nine miles later, fed the river. Long Pond was a pause in the river’s flow — the river putting up its feet and taking a break.

  • BLOG-The Age of Consent

    circle of friends

    In the hope of sharing a fun experience with my children, I turned a deaf ear to their discomfort. I must respect my child’s limits when fireflies fall to enchant.

    The best poem I’ll ever write is the one I’ll never write. It’s the one I’ll write only in my head, under the influence of bicycling, which apparently is for me as potent as the more illicit highs other writers have pursued for inspiration.

  • BLOG – Ode to my Bike

    Looking-at-tunnel

    Being able to bike this trail was exactly why I like biking so much: you can explore without limits, indulge your imagination, and physically connect with the world around you, all at your own pace.

  • BLOG-The Morning Alarm

    early Morning Chicken Visit

    We hit a snag but didn’t lose heart. We let the early moment that alarmed pass until it was replaced by a charming wonder.

  • BLOG— In summer’s country

    And that’s how childhood seems to me, a place more than a time. I still dream about certain things: the creek, the cherry tree in the backyard, the concrete front stoop that was a clean, if somewhat bumpy, slate for drawing.

  • BLOG-Born To Run

    A coop, a concert, and recovery from a near calamity.

  • BLOG — Bear facts

    Lauren “Chuck” Shows goes camping in a bear haven and lives to tell the tale — as do most visitors to Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
