Winter 2021 Update!
I took nice walks with my wife and son through the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center on December 1st and December 2nd. It was remarkably mild both days and I wore a light jacket and did not need gloves or a hat for most of the walks. I can never recall the beginning of December being so warm – no freezing cold, snow or ice. I wondered if this is going to be the new normal and if so, how will the plants and animals adjust to the change. Global warming – or climate change - is a real phenomenon. I believe the changes will be less drastic for those of us in the Upper Midwest compared to other parts of the country and the world.
But it is the Holiday Season and a time for good thoughts and reflection. I wrote a short story entitled “A Christmas Wonder” a couple of years ago that sums up many of the feelings I have about the Christmas Season.
In 2022, I anticipate releasing my latest novel tentatively entitled “Where the Corn Grows Tallest – A Tale of Mystery and Murder in America’s Heartland.” I’m taking a break from the Romans and writing about something more familiar to my life.
Have a great Holiday Season, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
May 2022 be a very good year!
