Still in Tune

“I know that voice!” There was instant recognition. He hadn’t seen me yet, and all I had done was to call out his name. That was all it took. The connection we had had years before was still tight. Good friends can reconnect in a heartbeat. I hadn’t told him I was coming to the … Continue reading Still in Tune

The Long and Short of It

Mission has a way of giving you new perspectives. I’ve been blessed to go to Alaska the past few years with some wonderful people.
