The Aftermath

So it’s the day, the day-and-a-half moment.


Tangled up in Blue has taken over our life.

In the Black

Welcome back, champ.

In the Dark

Each morning, I try to wake up in the dark, click on the coffee, putter around the house while everyone else sleeps. Well, everyone but the horsemen, out in the dark in barns afield.

Goodbye, Mike

Mike Berryman died January 24. The veteran horse trainer was 67.

The Empire

Three times. Empire Maker has stopped me in my tracks. Thudded me to silence. Jolted me from my thoughts.

Running and Writing

It was a throwaway line at the end of an email, five days into the New Year.


Quiet house.
