Growing in Place

What I learned from my Grandma Minnie

In these coming days, I’ll be offering some videos of poems and reflections as I shelter in place with my wife Susan, and our beloved yellow lab, Zuzu. I’ll be back on the road when it’s safe for us to gather again. Until then, I hope you’ll enjoy the videos. Please feel free to share as inspired.  Many blessings, Mark.

Lately I’ve been thinking about my relatives and my beloved Grandma Minnie, so today I want to share a poem “To Live Out The Gift” from my very first book, God, The Maker of the Bed, and the Painter.

My family and I wish you continued good health as we are all called up now to demonstrate how community can create a light in the darkest of times. And our banding together — even as we practice physical distancing — will enable us, as it has in each previous generation, to achieve its greater accomplishments. We are truly more together than alone. Wishing you blessings, Mark
