Showing posts from January, 2015


Yosemite in Winter January by  John Updike The days are short The sun a spark Hung thin between The dark and dark Fat snowy footsteps Track the floor Milk bottles burst Outside the door The river is A frozen place Held still beneath The trees of lace The sky is low The wind is gray The radiator Purrs all day. *   *   * Image by  TravelswithCharie

We Mourn the Loss of Lives

We mourn the loss of lives in the recent terror attack at Charlie Hebdo and the taking of hostages at a kosher supermarket, both incidents in Paris.  We pray for the victims and their families and for peace and tolerance in our increasingly fragile world.   *   *   * Image by TravelswithCharie
