Viaje Seguro

Indeed. Safe travels, my son. And may you richly enjoy your stay in Salamanca, Spain.  I am so excited for you!  Can't wait to see pics and hear all about it as we talk from there and when you get back to the states!

Lady's slipper

Fascinating flower. After reading The Stone Diaries, I now want to attempt to grow some of these.

Neil Young - Walk With Me



"I'm on  this journey...I don't want to walk alone."  Thanks to my Molly, my faithful walking companion who does love me so very much. And, I love her, too.

W.S. Merwin: To Waiting




To Waiting


You spend so much of your time
expecting to become
someone else
always someone
who will be different
someone to whom a moment
whatever moment it may be
at last has come
and who has been
met and transformed
into no longer being you
and so has forgotten you


meanwhile in your life
you hardly notice
the world around you
lights changing
sirens dying along the buildings
your eyes intent
on a sight you do not see yet
not yet there
as long as you
are only yourself


with whom as you
recall you were
never happy
to be left alone for long

W.S. Merwin
