Evening -

I am sad to learn that Saddam Hussein has been executed.  I don't believe we have the right to judge another in such a way as to justify ending their life.    I find it sad.

Jacki sends this poem.


Love the winter,

when the plant says nothing.

In this mystic season, I want to

remember to unplug the flashing

lights and sip the long evenings,

to breathe in the moon,

dance in the dark,

to love this winter nothing.

~Thomas Merton

This poem fits how I feel these days, the wrapping up of 2006, and preparing a place for 2007.
The days feel blessed to me.
                         I love the feel of these shortened days as they begin to stretch and reach for what is new to be.
                                  It is a time to set intention and plant with integrity and care.
