From The Publisher

Dearest EXPLORE reader, My son has my old childhood dresser in his room. It’s a fairly normal, heavy, antique wooden dresser.  Somebody told me once that it’s from the early 1900s, but I’ve never confirmed that.  It’s a nice dresser, with a large mirror, and well, it does a good job of holding a young…

My Love Of Listening

My love of listening, my becoming an appreciater of sound composition, started in San Antonio but flourished in Boerne. For that I am grateful to this city, my home. This story is the beginning of that affair.   I don’t think it would come as a surprise for me to say, Boerne is not in a…

Fix Me

My friend Johnny talks to God all the time. He doesn’t do this in the ways that you might think he is “talking” with God such as prayer or devotionals, but he really, REALLY talks to God. Someone will ask him to make a big decision, or they could be asking him to go to…

Old Timer

Boerne School District Obviously, my kids are grown and gone, but even back in the day, the BISD was a good one. And it still is. However, I can’t believe that parents tolerate the amount of time that the teachers take off. We’ve got the 3 months of summer, Christmas Break, and Spring Break, but…
