In prior years, many […]

Life Within a Stone

Life Within a Stone

Just Before Dawn

Just Before Dawn by Lois P. Jones   when the almost is not yet lit and the inbetween is a periwinkle world of snow that holds the bough, a memory tree recalls your days – small hours skim their surface like a blue-winged dragonfly. You as the perfect moment, abandoning the shade of limbs and […]

Snow Days & Noon Year’s Eve

Besides perfecting one’s snow angel-making and honing one’s snowball-making skills, kids can enjoy snow flakes crafts, the smells of winter, arctic animals, weeble wobble penguins, a winter wonder box, and messy winter art. It’s the annual winter wonderland of “Snow Days” at Kidspace, December 26-30. There will also be cookie decorating, a seedlings give-away, and […]
