Lois, your photos are wonderful. The flowers and the gray Maine rocks--especially the peonies and the columbine with the gray Maine rock in the background. Even more wonderful is the grace with which you bear bereavement.

I don't visit many blogs these days, and in fact, try not to. But I'll stop in here from time to time, always drawn back by your great good sense, your humanity, your spirit, your aliveness.

Even in a time of loss, you give us light.

Great blog, great books, great life. Thank you.

Thank you, James. I don't read many blogs either, I think because it is too easy to waste (is it really wasting? Yes, I guess it is) time by peering into the lives of strangers. But there is occasionally a nice feeling of communication, either from reading...or writing...a blog post.


Perhaps by blogging we share our experiences with people of similar tastes, interests and values, on a more immediate way, with the same urgency story tellers have been sharing their tales throughout history to help us feel less alone in the world?

I neither surf the net much or do any online blogging but i found myself caught up in this. One thing that has became part of my life is to stop by at your blog and your official website, reading great experiences from you and how you face up to life, how you manage to be independent. You have created a significant impact in my life through all your books and your experiences you share.
Thanks alot! <3
