  2. The imagery of your words will stay with me all day. Reminds me of my childhood Sunday school reading of the book of Genesis.

  14. thanks every one -- it was my son suggestion being that his generation is into tech messaging to go Haiku or go brief --

    And some lovely folks left comments but they did not appear on the blog -- I know that where they went.

  15. Hello again ... I actually snapped that photo during a trip from Bend over to the Coast. But you are so right about the beauty of this area I live in. Oregon is a spectacular State.
