Get Away, Step Away

I’m standing in front of an audience of thousands taking a final bow and walking off the stage. That is the picture that keeps wakening my mind as I sit in the blue chair, in the corner of the great room, at our mountain home in Welches, Oregon. Dig, Dig, Dig In Portland on Thursday,…
