A couples’ relationship is the hub of the wheel of the family, from which all other parts of our lives radiate like spokes.

We change in incremental stages rather than dramatic breakthroughs.

The Colors of the Wind
The wind whistles, roars and purrs. It teases, soothes, or rips us with cold stabs to match its winter song. Poetic? Yes, but literally and subtly true.
As the speed of the wind increases, its pitch rises. A diminishing breeze sings a corresponding lower tone. When the wind dances, its movement speeds up, creating musical glissandos, with its pitch gradually changing like the howling of a wolf. How much fun it is to listen to the…Continue
