I consider myself fortunate to have a mind open to messages old and new. The blogs I visit (Mama’s Empty Nest), stories I read (The Book Thief), songs I hear (Ozzy Osbourne’s Crazy Train), and films I watch (Tree of Life) all leave their impressions. Some are fleeting. Others linger.

  1. Kate, thanks for the shout out! 😉 Seriously, the power of words is incredible. I love the story you shared about the boy who wanted words to get well (I’m sending him a card!) and the youtube video was simply awesome. Thanks for sharing it with us.
