Happy New Year, Dear Readers!

for most of 2016, I was unable to access this page. Now that the difficulties have been cleared, I want to mention that I currently winter in Southeast Texas--you'll see some pictures soon. Fo now, here is a snapshot of the hunters in my family: Walter, my oldest (second from left) and Frank, my middle son (first on left) with Frank's two sons, Brett (to the right of Walt) and Colton (first on the right). Frank and family (spouse not shown) visited Walter and fami...

Sneak Preview

Posted by Edith Cook on Sunday, November 1, 2015, In : Reading Life 
As promised, a sneak preview of the column I submitted  to the editors of Wyoming Tribune Eagle and Casper Star Tribune for this week's publication, likely for Saturday, Nov. 7, 2014. The essay is something of a mixed bag--let's see what headlines the respective editors devise.

Driving down the road many years ago, I heard a song on the radio so arresting, I pulled over to give it my full attention. It was Roberta Flack, performing her composition, “The First Time Ever,” a paean to...

The Winds of Change--in Wyoming

Posted by Edith Cook on Sunday, April 6, 2014, In : Personal 

It had to happen: I took the leap. After eight years of living here, becoming part of the community, I put my Cheyenne, WY, home on the market. I found out I can list online with and signed up with the company. Since I am friends with several realtors, I’ve also alerted them that I’m willing to work with anyone who is an agent for buyer.

Once my son and family announced they were moving to Texas for professional reasons, I knew I would downsize: they’d often used my hom...

California Visit

Posted by Edith Cook on Saturday, December 24, 2011, In : Reading Life 
 It's mid-December and I once again find myself in the East Bay of California. This time of year people wear shorts and shirt-sleeves; they take their children to playgrounds after school even at four PM, which I do with my grandson today. They ride bikes; they stroll through vineyards. Back in Wyoming a storm dumps snow that turns to ice on the sidewalks; here, we enjoy balmy weather. My grandson and I put a pant into the ground before his father and I went to Farmer's Market where even now ...

About Me

Edith Cook Though I now live in Wyoming, I make frequent return trips to California with visits to travel club members along the way. At home I play classical guitar, enjoy gardening and cooking, and participate in group yoga. Getting together with family and friends is high on my agenda. I value people who write or make music and love it when my adult children and their offspring play their instruments, sing songs with me, or discuss what they read and write. Such gatherings help me cope with the losses in my life, which have been severe. Next year I hope to visit family in Germany.
