Five encounters. A raised chain stitch through them all. A dear friend I have not seen nor talked to in nearly five years. She texted the link to a Gary Brecka (human biologist and former actuarial professional) video about health pillars like breathing and spending time outside … sun and… The post ALIVE ON A SUNDAY appeared first on Juliet Rome ..read more

SHE STANDS TALL

We can get it wrong, our understanding of who the giants are among us. We celebrate, of course, intellect, great gifting, art and accomplishment, pillars of industry and commerce. They make our world a better place. There are some, on the other side of adversity, who make us better for… The post SHE STANDS TALL appeared first on Juliet Rome ..read more

A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT
Juliet Rome

It has been some time since we put miles and several days’ distance between us and home. Hard to leave family, work, home, the call of spring planting and all the worries and what ifs in the rearview mirror. Complicated with a rescue pup, whose home is the two of… The post A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT appeared first on Juliet Rome ..read more

A handful of kindle books returned after reading a few pages, I picked up English Pastoral: An Inheritance, by James Rebanks, from the blue-and-white porcelain bowl where I stashed it to dust until sometime in the far future when I’d have time and glasses on to read a hard-copy book.… The post HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY, I AM appeared first on Juliet Rome ..read more

GUARDRAILS

Presumably, Alex just had another flying lesson. I overhead J. talking to him … mom wants you to wear goggles and a helmet. In my defense, I am also the mother who rarely failed to say, you look good in your uniform. [Momspeak for hang in there and finish this.]… The post GUARDRAILS appeared first on Juliet Rome ..read more

WILL YOU SING?

This is the question I am asking myself. I know it will mean something different to you. I remember the year of traveling around the state meeting with bank heads. In a position loftier than my talent and probably not where my heart or ambitions lay. Traveling with older, more… The post WILL YOU SING? appeared first on Juliet Rome ..read more

CORNERS SQUARED AND COVERS PULLED TIGHT

Tired of a diet of crime TV, we’ve turned to music and sports documentaries. Among other inspirational themes, both deliver their takes on overcoming adversity. Shot, but not dead. Never give in and never give up. Fear is energy you can use. Last night’s look at the life of a… The post CORNERS SQUARED AND COVERS PULLED TIGHT appeared first on Juliet Rome ..read more

WALTZING OVER A TRAP DOOR

I am troubled this morning by my complacency. Turning pages toward the end of the novel, “[The Covenant of Water],” by Abraham Verghese, a deep dive into life in India and the caste system there, I fought sleep thinking about the many things I take for granted. Entitlement is a… The post WALTZING OVER A TRAP DOOR appeared first on Juliet Rome ..read more

THIS IS MY EDEN

I love to water plants early in the morning before the heat sets in. I remember a misty morning as a child, swinging, watching my grandmother water her flowers. I hope they were roses or peonies. I remember a friend telling her young son there are places in the world… The post THIS IS MY EDEN appeared first on Juliet Rome ..read more

MONOFILAMENT LINE STRETCHES TO ABSORB SHOCKS

If matters of faith are uncomfortable reading, it’s ok to turn the page. There is no intent here to bait and switch. J. hadn’t fished in years. He caught two bluegill, one channel catfish and three largemouth bass with a Zebco 33, 10-lb., “impossible-to-break” line and an orange shineee hineee… The post MONOFILAMENT LINE STRETCHES TO ABSORB SHOCKS appeared first on Juliet Rome ..read more
