Early morning. Dark. The howling winds from yesterday have quieted for now. Coffee tastes good this morning. Coming off an extended period of lay-off (4 months) back to the same old grind Monday. Not what I wanted, but we rarely get what we want in life. No great revelations here, just thoughts before the day begins. Check out my stories and check back with this category now and then. Who knows I may have some profound things to say, or not. Until next time.
