To Pass or Not to Pass
It was the fall of 2017. The snow was crunchy; the sun bright, shining on the bitter cold mountainside. I’d just kicked 4 doe off a small open hummock to my right, and I got that old familiar feeling of more deer in my presence, I just couldn’t see them yet. I slowed to a metered cautiou...

The Gabi Buck

The Gabi Buck
Gabi is my middle child, sandwiched between her two brothers. She is by far the most outspoken of my kids, and is the most independent and intense. I grew up with seven sisters, so in a way, I get girls. But, I also grew up in a German immigrant household, so let us say it wasn’t the warmest d...
