Skywatch Friday: Ordinary Times


When I rise, 
Let me rise. 
Like a bird, 
Joyfully. 
And when I fall, 
Let me fall. Like a leaf, 
Gracefully, without regrets. 
(Thich Nhat Hanh)

  27. Your new style of blog and photos reflect a dramatic change in your life since we blogged. Maybe it is me but I liked the new englander better. You seemed more oopenthen.I am not a critic but a friend that misses you. Of cource your poems are alwas good Maybe it is because my sight is dimming But I have a repreave The V.A. will operate on my eyes to recover some sight. Then I wiil be a better observer. Maybe a better speller as well.
