We love American poetry! Who hasn’t enjoyed the rural scenarios of Robert Frost, the boldness of Maya Angelou, the mysterious darkness of Edgar Allan Poe, and the work of many more great American poets?
The weather outside right now isn't exactly inviting--first it rains, then it snows, then it rains again. It's a good day to be inside. But snow or no snow, we all know winter is finished, and all this moisture means the hillsides are about to be covered with wildflowers. Most Coloradans recognize famous one like the Rocky Mountain Columbine, but what about the lesser-known wildflowers? Have you met the Blue Toadflax? How about the Curvepod Fumewort? Little Pink Elephants? I haven't, I'm afraid, but I've decided this is the year I will.
Growing up in the northeast, I had always assumed albeit naively that slavery only existed in the southern states.

Much to my dismay it existed everywhere even in my hometown, the city of New York. How shocking that was.
A wise woman once said "Your body hears everything your mind says." That woman was Naomi Judd. Okay, I don't know how wise she is, but I sure connected with that quote. And I figure someone who has faced serious health issues and spent much of her life touring must know something about how stress impacts your body!
Are you thinking about the marijuana business and are tempted by the prospect of making lots of money?
It may seem enticing, but…., where are you going to safe keep those greenbacks? --In a bank? Forget it. And, what are you going to do about taxes? The federal government regards the marijuana trade as illegal, but God forbid, you fail to remit those taxes!
Those are just a few things you will have to deal with.
