  • Palabras Pintorescas: Book, ‘The Map of Heaven,’ a must-read

    My friends know how much I like to read, and they are generous — they hand me current, obviously new to me books to read. One of my favorite new ones is “The Map of Heaven” by Eben Alexander, M.D. Its subtitle is “How Science, Religion and Ordinary people are proving the Afterlife.”

    I will admit I let it sit on my coffee table for a while. I no longer am the best at reading scientific writings. However, the contents page alone caught my attention.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Sage advice: Stay calm, reflect, be full of life

    What a way to start the day! Every pond is full of water, grasses and wildflowers are bursting from the ground, and the mountain streams are flowing bank to bank. Almost four inches of rain in May is incredible in so many ways. And our Gascon point gets frequent snow showers. That tells me it is still cold and colder the higher one goes. I continue to remind the newcomers to this area that this is the way may used to be. We still don’t know whether our apple trees will have fruit because nights are still pushing the freezing mark up here.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Never underestimate the power of a lightning bolt

    Summer is almost here, even though our mountains have had several late snow storms in May, no less. And, the newspapers, radio and television have had some disturbing news lately.

    Back in the day, quite a while ago, we tuned in to KFUN radio because that really was the only source for daytime news in the country where we lived.

    If there was a fire burning in the area, the radio station would immediately let us know where it was. That ultimately had to end because too many folks showed up, mostly just to look.
