"Easter Ode to a Cupola"

"In my walking I have seen you, standing steady, proudly ringing. Gather all your children, Steeple! Far and widely scattered are they: busy working, tired of learning, tired of being classroom-seated, tired of writing poems on paper, tired of doing sums and reading, tired of what you have to offer. Bring them back with hearty pealing! Make them eager for your learning. Make them into men and women. Make them wise and make them loving.

"All of us depend on YOU!"

Skywatch Friday "Rocks at Stone Lagoon":

This wonderful picture was taken by Gail Slaughter on "her" beach in northern California, and I couldn't resist the blues expressed... sky, sea, surf and beach.

"Winter Hunting Ground"

"We snowshoed in to Nashua Creek yesterday where we saw a bluejay that had been eaten, perhaps by the fox whose tracks skirted the edge of the ice."
