Contemplative – learning and living with mistakes and consequences of the past, but always with hope, since the Creator always gives us a future and a hope.
Am aware for some of you this post may be a little uncomfortable, but you are free to comment on it or not.
When I look at my blog in later days I want to remember the questions and concerns I personally had at this time.
Soon these doors will be open again!
Closed no more – we hope
Folsom, now a sleepy cute town with many reminders
of the Gold Rush. The railroad was then an important
part of culture. Heard several stories.
Now known as a glorious past, was once a time
of people grabbing and manipulating to get the gold.
A lot of heart ache when people had given up everything
to come here, and not able to get enough
of the enviable metal, to make a living, or worse,
losing everything. For others it may have been
a glorious past, but we nowadays we still live
with the decisions once made then.
Likewise, America, am very concerned and I have been praying when realizing (again my own thoughts about this)
* having allowed another country to buy up so much property in ports of entry (relief -a bill has been passed to stop this)
* Manufacture of 90% of antibiotics and other things by that country (president is looking for alternative places)
*allowing American companies to switch their home base to that country – money speaks
* -$$$ being given- and allowing an extra curricular place in our colleges (fortunately 50 schools reversed that)
It has come to haunt us.
That country planned America to be part of them, with their systems in place by 2026. Have to give it to them, they did a good job, but they didn’t count on …. how shall I call it, by lack of a better word, the spirit of independence of Americans.
Hope America, you will conquer any foreign interference!
Boslaan or Forest Lane was the first time I lived
in a forest,with this lane ending up in a sand path.
It was quite a dream, where we lived for one
and a half year and where my youngest was born
Nadia asked for opening. My favorite moment is when
buds start to open more, like here.

As in a dream – a single painting does not quite give
you the overall mood in the gallery in Nice, France,
but I wished I could have taken one of Chagall’s paintings
about the Song of Salomon with me –
love so unassuming and ravishing at the same time
One Word photo
When I was five years old, I came to live in a small town.
Except for the town square with a church and some shops,
the wind mill was a major marker I had to pass
whenever I wanted to go to my best friend,
on the other end of town.
Hail in May ….really??
Nature tells or “prophesies” spiritual conditions
