Week Twenty-six: Amanda Kasper

What does the holiday season look like for you and your family? It’s strange to me. I started blogging in 2009, and I never once have written about the holiday season. I’ve participated twice in #Reverb, or reverberations, 30 days of prompts to close one door and open the next, to celebrate days gone by … Continue reading

Week Twenty-six: Kathy Benson

What does the holiday season look like for you and your family? Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. I love this time of year for many reasons… decorating and then enjoying the beauty of our and others’ Christmas trees, listening to and singing Christmas carols, lighting the candles on our Advent wreath, acting out … Continue reading

Week Twenty-six: Brian B. Baker

What does the holiday season look like for you and your family? When my wife and I got married we swore, regardless of our beliefs, we would still celebrate Christmas and Easter. The reason for this is two fold. We both had friends who didn’t participate in Christmas when we were kids, and knew how … Continue reading

Week Twenty-five: Amanda Kasper

What’s the best/worst gift you’ve ever given/received? The best gift I’ve ever given isn’t a story that’s mine to tell. It was a beautiful piece of jewelry, etched with initials and a date. A date that holds forever meaning in the heart of a friend. When the gift was given, her heart melted in the … Continue reading

What’s the best/worst gift you’ve ever given/received? I can name a bunch of worst gifts I received over the years, but it was the best gift, which was only last year that is my favorite. I’d been wanting to get into vinyl records for a long time. I love blues, jazz, classic rock and I … Continue reading

Week Twenty-four: Amanda Kasper

If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be? Two lives that shine as one Morning glory and midnight sun Time we’ve learned to sail above Time won’t change the meaning of one love Ageless and evergreen July 11th, 1982, my mother married my father in a timeless and eloquent … Continue reading

Week Twenty-four: Kathy Benson

  If you could witness any event, past, present or future, what would it be? This is such an awesome and overwhelming question. I could easily come up with a different answer each week and explore that every Thursday for a year or more. I considered so many possibilities and in the end came up … Continue reading

Week Twenty-four: Peter Combs

If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be? This prompt was more difficult to write than it should have been. I initially wanted to write about my interest in witnessing a part of the late 1800’s and early 1900’s America. For some reason that time period has always fascinated … Continue reading

Week Twenty-four: Brian B. Baker

If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be? Thirty to forty years from now there will be an event. One that will change who we believe we are, what we believe and whether there is anything to believe in. First contact is one thing I believe will happen in … Continue reading
