CARPE DIEM SPECIAL #153: Old Cemetery

inspiration from Rallentanda:
a beautiful peace
I sit quietly with them  
feeling their presence

 This is in Vincennes, Indiana, at the Old Cathedral Cemetery

the peace of our Lord
felt here among those long gone
will you pass it on?

Hoosier Quote:
“When I say that peace must be planned on a world basis, 
I mean quite literally that it must embrace the earth… 
It is inescapable that there can be no peace 
for any part of the world 
unless the foundations of peace 
are made secure throughout all parts of the world.”
~Wendell L. Willkie~ 


That's one thing believers are mandated to do, isn't it? Pass it on!

Yes I will with the occasional tossing of the tables in the temple where injustice and hypocrisy occur:) Good one Nonnie :)

CHOKA: 7 lines, 5/7/5/7/5/7/7
baby- heaven sent   arrived early- Miriam  minuscule fingers- slender exquisitely made mouth, chin like father’s  in love when first I held her appeals for her wellbeing

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…

Organic and Fresh Salad

The beans seen above and layered on my salad below are grown by my granddaughter Candice.  The name of the beans is Tanya's Pink Pods. All veggies on her Earth Candy Acres farm are organically grown. The beans are delicious and tender, making a grand addition to my salad. Topping the veggies are dried cranberries, adding a bit of sweetness.
