Light and Seasons

What is a song or poem that speaks to you and why?
Bloganuary Prompt for January 25, 2023

summer evening
quiet music and
a few Psalms
new evergreen growth
still in the sun

The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.

Psalm 74: 16-17 (KJV)

Post from July 28, 2022

Many verses from the Psalms – the light and seasons today.

Who is your favorite author and why?
Bloganuary Prompt for January 21, 2023

Jan Karon’s novels are wonderful – characters, stories, craft.

Last year, I discovered The Mitford Museum site. The museum is in Hudson, NC and was founded by Jan Karon. The beautiful site includes more information.

And I have written often about poets, especially Luci Shaw. And I am also reading more books by Ted Kooser.

Many who create blogs also offer their books. Grateful for all. I also learn about poets and books from reviews in journals, including Time Of Singing and Modern Haiku.

These are only a few examples.

What irritates you about the home you live in?
Bloganuary Prompt for January 20, 2023

I have been watching the Craft In America series on PBS. Many artists, art forms, cultures, and places. I enjoy the conversations, how crafts are preserved and passed along to new generations, and seeing the creative work spaces.

There have been a few times when we lost power over the years, and Karl bought generators and battery-operated lights. This year, there was one evening when our energy company asked customers to conserve – for example, turn the heat lower and no gas fireplaces – and all was stable and back to normal soon.

Shelter, heat, water and even internet – so here I sit with a new post! In our old home that began as a cottage in the 1940s, and reflects the work of many people.

Bloganuary Prompt for January 8, 2023

How far back in your family tree can you go?

In terms of my memories, the generation who lived before my parents. And some of their stories.

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me
