Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

November Sunset

This was the sky I saw last evening when I went out to feed the critters: a contrast of dark clouds and brilliant red-gold against a gray sky.

Next year the big power lines will bisect this view. I'd better enjoy these sunsets while I can.

If I were waxing poetic, I'd say that life is like this sunset—a contrast of light and dark. Ominous clouds hang over our brighter moments, but brilliance shines through the gloom.

Nothing lasts forever.
