Day of Few Words
We went to a chili party last night near the Bight. (Do you know what a bight is? It's a bay on a bay.) I took a salad made from Sweeter Song vegetables and our own delicious tomatoes, plus dried cranberries (we're temporarily--very temporarily, that will be--out of cherries) and veggie crisps, my latest snack addiction. It was a lovely evening in an old cottage from the American Craftsman era (this particular house from 1913), indoors by the fires with friends, not bothered at all by the autumn rain. Later, arriving home, as we pulled up in front of our old farmhouse the clouds parted to reveal the full moon. The moon is really my whole story for today (the rest is commentary), but another couple of images begged to be included, so here they are.
The first is Sarah last week in the upper reaches of the Mississippi River. Doesn't she look completely "in her element"? She does not, however, like to go in deeper than she can touch bottom.
The second is another image of An American Bible for one of several readers going by the name "Anonymous."
