If you live where the Monday after Easter is a holiday, this might feel more like a Monday. You’ve got that mild apprehension of getting back to work after a few days off, knowing there’s bound to be something that has cropped up that you really don’t want to deal with. I figured a little […]

It seems like a lifetime ago, but it is really only a year. Can you believe that? A year ago, if you purchased a sausage on a bun at the Freiburg Market you had the choice of mustard, ketchup or curry sauce condiments. After you were given your sausage by the vendor you grabbed a […]

So here we are again. Didn’t they tell us last year was a one-time event? But let’s not go down that rabbit hole, or at least not today. We may be in the middle of an apparently unending global pandemic, but there are some universal truths that still remain. The biggest is that which we […]

Sometimes you have to fight back. Sometimes you have to say “enough is enough.” The virus that just won’t go away has stymied politicians as they attempt to deal with a public health “crisis” that just doesn’t seem that urgent after a year. We’ve gotten used to COVID-19 and government interference in our lives, both […]

I’ve shared this song with you before, but it has been six years and warrants another listen. Easter songs are full of joy. On Good Friday there’s a different feel. We know today that joy is indeed on the way, but it is still a somber occasion. So many of the lines from this song […]

I didn’t click on the link. It seemed strange that I would never have heard of such a prestigious organization, so I […]

Friends dropped by Monday evening and we weren’t home. So they went for a walk in the hills around Sulzburg, sending pictures as they did. I found it interesting to see what scenes they thought were worthy of preservation. We live in a beautiful area – and sometimes it takes another person’s eyes to remind […]

A busy weekend has left me with no time to finish the post I had intended for today. Rather than skip posting, I thought you might like to see this – it’s been four years since I first shared it. This image came to mind as the past couple of evenings I have been out […]

Today is Palm Sunday. Seems like a good time for some church pictures. “What village is that” is a fairly common question my wife of I will ask as we walk though our area of Germany. So many little places in the distance, and in four years there are still a few we haven’t explored. […]
