A few thoughts as I turn the page of the calendar to November:
Margaret Dornaus published a special collection, “Day of the Dead III,” on her blog, Haiku-doodle. Many fine artists are featured, with links to their sites. She kindly included the SERENE acrostic I wrote for my mother (October 19, 2012 Post on this blog). Margaret’s link is http://www.haikudoodle.wordpress.com.
I remember attending an All Saints Day service that remembered my cousin, Paul, and several others, at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. As many of you know, his land is now the Paul Brandt School Forest in Boscobel, Wisconsin. Paul was a Vietnam veteran, who returned and gave his life to conservation.
