Swamp oaks

Bare now,
soon to be leafed,
the four hundred
raise their branches
to remember
horror and hope
fear and courage
destruction and grace
and, in a place of death,
to proclaim love and life.

12 Dec #Rough

Taken at Valley Presbyterian Church, Portola Valley, CA. Note the purple flowers.

The Advent devotional project, #AdventWord  is offered by the Society of St John the Evangelist. Each day a word is provided and participants are invited to share images and/or reflections and to use hashtags so our reflections may be included in an Advent Calendar with others from around the world.

Why I like New York 18: the wonder of Central Park

Central Park has hooked me. Wonders fill the park. Each visit brings new sights. New experiences.

Even when one becomes lost, delight often lies just around the next corner.

See you along the Trail.

D is for Diversity

It comes in many forms at Ghost Ranch:





sometimes even the trees

and the moon

reflect the diversity

God creates.
