Old and New


This is a photo of the Sunset Island bridges, the old one and the new one. The new one is scheduled to open by the end of August. The old one is the last operating side-draw bridge in the United States. Many people aren't happy about the new bridge, and vice versa. I have yet to make up my mind.

Beach Music

We're off to the beach for a whole week!! I can't wait till I smell the ocean air and feel the warm breezes. I hope you all have a great week.

Soar

Sometimes you just have to soar, and if you catch the wind just right you can just float along! I'm heading to the beach this weekend and looking forward to floating along through a hot summer week. I'm looking forward to being with my family, eating lots of seafood, reading a couple of easy reads, meditating on God's Word by the ocean, and playing in the waves. I know I'm 52, but I still like to play! May you all have a blessed week!

An American Prayer

An American Prayer

A Prayer for America
by US Rep Dennis Kucinich, Feb. 17, 2002

I offer these brief remarks today as a prayer for our country, with love of democracy, as a celebration of our country. With love for our country. With hope for our country. With a belief that the light of freedom cannot be extinguished as long as it is inside of us. With a belief that freedom rings resoundingly in a democracy each time we speak freely. With the understanding that freedom stirs the human heart and fear stills it. With the belief that a free people cannot walk in fear and faith at the same time.

With the understanding that there is a deeper truth expressed in the unity of the United States. That implicit in the union of our country is the union of all people. That all people are essentially one. That the world is interconnected not only on the material level of economics, trade, communication, and transportation, but innerconnected through human consciousness, through the human heart, through the heart of the world, through the simply expressed impulse and yearning to be and to breathe free.

Crocodile Hunter!

The grand kids spent last weekend with us in VA. It was totally fun and totally exhausting! I'm glad we were really young when we had our kids... now we're still pretty young to be grandparents. In this pic, Halle and Josh were "staging" a skit about a handsome crocodile hunter saving a pretty lady in distress. As you can see, Josh the Hunter saved the pretty lady Halle in the nick of time... and he bagged a pretty big croc as well!
