What do you think?


    • Absolutely Carol. I remember one evening on our 40th. wedding anniversary, my wife Daleen and I were reminiscing about our whirlwind courtship. “Do you know why you appealed so much to me?” She asked me fondly. “No” I said, “why did I?”
      “You didn’t have any pickup line. She said. “In spite of the fact that you had been a policeman, you were really very shy. “Why, I can still remember how you used to blush. I could suddenly feel my face start turning crimson, for Pete’s sake, I thought, it’s been 40 years! Suddenly she leaned closer, adjusted her glasses and gasped, “your’e blushing now! “No I’m not!” I replied. “That’s what you said back then too.” she said, smiling. Thanks Carol for taking me down memory lane again.

    • Thank you JerriPeri1 for your comment. You know Jerry, I really meant what I wrote about, these tranquil places, having the power to bringing out the creative spirit in me. Perhaps it’s the same for others. Who could better understand nature’s quiet places than a farmer. You spend your waking moments closer to the earth than most of us. You have more faith than most other people, because, you till, then you sow and you wait for the rains. Where is there someone more believing than a farmer? With La Nina weather it is even more so now a day but what does the real farmer do? he tills, sows and waits for the rains which silly men call folly, lacking good sense or foresight, even an act of foolishness. Thank you for being foolish, we need you.

    • Hello Teila, you and me both can be that person, living from moment to moment. The great thing for people who believe in a greater power than oneself, and knowing, that whether our best efforts are acknowledged by other or not, HE knows! Thank you my friend for reading and commenting.
