That Lost Summer

by SteveHulse on July 9, 2016 · 3 comments

The other day I read about a woman who was driving along, listening to the radio and heard an old song that was popular back in her high school days. It hit her so hard, emotionally, that she had to pull over for a few minutes. I can relate. My long-term memory is fairly clear, […]


What If…

by SteveHulse on April 30, 2016 · 0 comments

“What if?” A simple thought, a tiny phrase carrying within it the powerful punch of limitless possibility. But who says “what if” these days, who dares to imagine beyond the scope of what seems currently possible today? To dream beyond *what is* isn’t practical, in most cases… the tech field being a notable exception…there’s little […]


A Genius By Any Other Name…

There have been a bunch of artistic geniuses on Facebook in the last several years… and it seems they’re all 12 years old or under. Good god! Most of them have performances on YouTube, and they are all truly incredible! Dancers, acrobats, singers, guitarists, violinists and keyboardists… amazing! It’s my guess that as the population […]

See that little raft up there? See where it is? What’s the first thing that comes to mind? Got it? Let me tell you what I see. A place… of course. A quiet, serene, untarnished place.

By Februrary, many of us have been in the clutches of Winter for 4-5 months. The days have been short, gray and cold. We can’t help but long for warmer days, soft breezes, and sun… enough to lift our spirits, however briefly, and remind us that summer, glorious summer, is on the way. But what […]


A New Paradise

It’s quiet here, peaceful… almost too peaceful, after the madness of the outside world. It is so wonderfully locked in another time and place, there is a sense of culture shock when one first arrives here.  The air smells fresh with pine, freshly-cut grass, fruit trees and ocean waters. The gentle, cooling breeze is reassuring, […]

Have realized that I need to blow Montana a big kiss before I move on… so here it is. Tribute To Montana Well, damn! You know, this state has been one of the major loves of my life. I grew up here, learned to love the outdoors here. What I know about solitude and the […]
