A journey back to self

I’m a young person in recovery. For me, that means it’s been over four years since I’ve taken a drink or a drug. I grew up in a very small town by the name of Long Eddy in Sullivan County. Sullivan County felt like a very small place, lacking in things for young people to do.

Soul intentions for recovery

Honesdale News

As ice melts, puddles spread and snow falls yet again, breaks of clear sky highlight oases of color. A few landscape nooks have been brickcanvas-activated recently. Last year, two murals made a fall debut. One can be seen when travelling downstream in Main Street’s traffic flow. The other is tucked away and visible when looking upstream.

Spring forward, fall back

It’s that time of year again. As Old Man Winter considers taking a back seat, the weather vacillates, see-sawing from mild to wild. It’s below 30 as I write this, but we’re expecting near 60 by the time The River Reporter hits
