Within a Soft Whisper


Within a soft whisper, filling us with life, with meaning

from the flow of love

making all the difference

creating a heart alive


with a powerful beauty.

As the Cool Air Lifts Our Spirits


As the concrete lets go of the heat of the day,

shade wins the battle

turning into night

as the cool air lifts our spirits

we walk under the street lights

holding hands grateful

for the spray

of the water fountains.

My Sunday Afternoon


People don’t read the paper on Sunday anymore, do they? We I guess if it’s online. Today I’m taking it easy. After church, and lunch with the family, I’m spending some time reading.

Currently I’m reading Jan Karon’s book, Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good. I’ve had this book on my shelf for years and even started it once, but it’s been like rediscovering buried treasure! I think I’ve now read the whole Mitford series. I can’t wait to see what else I have on my shelf!

I’m also writing today. When I go back and read what I wrote months ago, I can’t believe how many changes are needed!

Tonight there’ll be some buttered popcorn, and a movie with my sweetheart. I’ve found the best movies are usually watched at home.

Before then, it’s always good to have a nap! Isn’t that what Sundays are made for?

I don’t have Facebook or Twitter so thanks for listening to me ramble.

So how are you spending your day?
