Bloganuary Prompt for January 29, 2023

What is something you learned recently?

I love to learn, and learn more every day. Today I would like to share a few photos by Karl, who helped me begin here some time ago.

Language

What language do you wish you could speak?
Bloganuary Prompt for January 26, 2023

reading haiku
all the places we live
all we have in common

I was reading from Haiku Society of America members anthologies, and posted my haiku at Poems For Bulletin Boards last year.

As I wrote here, “I studied French when young, from 6th grade through the beginning of college at UW-Madison.  I remember singing carols in French” (December 24, 2014).

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.

How do you show love?

another year
has passed since
my mother’s passing
I sit and quietly read
a book she would like too

the caregiver finds time

Home

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.
