Watch out for falling rock! A mountain town and its rugged mayor captivate a woman in search of a new life and love.
A Message from Bonnie
Superhuman achievements, extravagant wealth and grandiloquent language, political power or notoriety, or the external signs of success aren’t impressive. Instead, the wonder in the world around me, the respect I feel when an individual meets trouble with dignity and hard work, my amazement to learn of a small triumph in an everyday life motivate me.
My response isn’t unique. From a piece as banal yet charming as Flower Drum Song (“A Hundred Million Miracles”) to soul-stirring poems by Ranier Maria Rilke (“Duino Elgies”), we’re reminded how fleeting our existence and how valued our senses, experiences and thoughts should be.
So my writing and my blog explore these details with humor, aversion, praise, or awe, both the highs and lows of incidents I run across. You’re welcome to comment, read, or respond if you’re so inclined.
