Lace and such…

This is a lovely morning in my home town! The air is gentle, not damp, and comfortably cool. Sunbeams push through the the slowly morphing scarlet, rust and tarnished gold of the trees on my path. My senses are heightened by this simple yet elegant beauty and I feel alive and awake in a way … More Lace and such…

In that dream, God placed upon my shoulders a mantle of white, lined in an wave pattern of sapphire … More Why a peacock?
