  • BY HILDA PARRISH

    Hello, I am a barn. I’m not a red barn or a green barn. I’m not even a blue barn. I’m just a plain old wooden barn.

    I have double doors on the front and double doors on the back. Mr. Farmer, my owner, calls me his Tobacco Barn. He has a Hay Barn and a Cow Barn, but they can tell you about themselves later.

  • My husband took me to Washington D.C. as an eighth anniversary trip. I packed everything I thought we could possibly need; everything except rain gear. We had one small umbrella but everything else was thoroughly absorbent; possibly ultra-absorbent.

    Washington D.C. has incredible traffic around the clock. The streets are never empty and the lights are always red. The only way to get around is by scooter, bike, foot or fervent wishes. We dropped the car in a parking garage; a garage that held our car hostage; and set out to hit the town.

  • All of us, at some point, will go through a tough time. The truth is we’re either heading into a trial, in a trial, or coming out of a trial. I don’t know what it might be for you, but I’d guess you are probably battling one fire or another. It could be a financial, health-related, relational or employment. We all face fires.

  • A week or so ago, I went to a celebration of life service at a church I’d never been to before.

    Behind the altar was a huge glass wall with a huge glass mosaic crucifix in the middle.

    While I waited for the service to start, I studied the crucifix, the intricate pieces of colored glass fit together to form Christ’s body.

    Unlike a jigsaw puzzle, these glass pieces didn’t fit together smoothly and perfectly. The edges appeared to be rough. Perhaps the artist had used broken bits and pieces? I couldn’t tell.
