Women and Horses 

The new CD "Ride a Wide Circle" was a labor of love from any way you look at it. There is love in the songs, love from fans who helped produce the music by pre-ordering, love from my husband, Brad…

Early Spring and a New CD!


We're enjoying a rare early Spring here in our corner of the West. Our little girls held 
my hand and led me out to the flower beds where the first crocus are budding with bright purple and yellow. Even the…

A Shift of Seasons 

This photograph was taken by my dear friend, Anita Crane, in our barnyard the day before Maria's wedding.  We are all here except my son, Luke, and my son, Charles and our daughter-in-law, Erica.
