My wife and I are relative newcomers here in Kodiak. We are now starting our sixth year of living in paradise. Every day has its own wonders to behold, but these last few weeks and the great weather we’ve been having seem to magnify it. Plenty of eagles have stayed close in this summer and at tim...

Another Day in Paradise: Every day shines bright
For the past two weeks, my wife and I have been traveling across the Lesser 48. That journey allowed us to spend some time with our sons, to watch one be commissioned as an officer in The Salvation Army, and to see the program that the other son is building through not only his eyes, but the eyes...

Another Day in Paradise: Strength in the community
I love to watch the activities this time of year. The sparrows are gathering and building nests and chattering rapidly at each other. The eagles are doing the same. I had to change my turn-around point on my morning walks with the dogs because one of the mallard hens was building a nest in the de...

Another Day in Paradise: Working on our reflection
The weather that we have been enjoying lately has tested my work ethics to the limits. After a long winter, the temptation to get outside is stronger because the limited opportunities of the season have finally given way to almost limitless days.

Another Day in Paradise: Sunshine makes it too easy to forget
It’s official! Last week we had a couple of nice days. That was Spring. This week we’ve had some more gorgeous days. This is Summer. For those of you keeping score, Winter can’t be far behind.

Another Day in Paradise: Our road to Emmaus
Our dogs have a pretty fixed schedule. Wake up mom so she will feed us. Wake up dad and take him for a walk. Help dad eat his breakfast. Help mom and dad at work.
