Susan Sampson | Pybus Public Market is a weekly treat

Every Saturday morning, all summer, I treat myself to a shopping trip to the Pybus Farmers Market. My trip is cheap recreational shopping compared to shopping at the mall, and shopping at the farmers market is practical — usually. Most recently, I’ve loaded up on ripe peaches from East Wenatchee, Kalstrom’s fresh corn picked the night before and this season’s apples.

Wendell George | Little Joe asks about the number four

My choice to change has led me to drub rehabilitation.

Wendell George | Little Joe discovers language can be confusing

Little Joe’s heart synchronized with the ancient two beats per second rhythm of the ceremonial drums. His vision swirled in ever descending spirals as he relaxed and felt his worries dissolve.
