    We’re missing you here in Blogland, Nancy!

      I love you, Wendy, and am missing you. I’ve allowed myself to become bogged down. Life happened to me. I have been like an empty shell going from doing to doing. I think I became the agenda or the agenda became me. I’m not even sure if I’m back yet, because the table is still covered with more tomatoes, and my buckets still have gigantic squashes that need processing. Sigh!

      But, I love you. No, my best friend, Josephine, gone now 6 years, told me that saying I love you following a “but” is not loving.

      And, I love you. Nancy

    Mmmmmm. Thank you for that, Nancy.

    Hearing the Song in your silence,

      Thank you, Jennifer. I wish I were as silent inside as I am in my blog. I’ve been working very hard politically since long before the Nov. elections. Human Rights issues take up so much of my time. I feel like I’m a voice crying in the wilderness of hatred, bigotry, self-servingness, greed, sanctimoniousness, etc. etc. etc. Someone has to voice the concerns of those who are bullied by the “haves,” the privileged, the straight, the “normal”, the homeboys, etc. etc. etc. even those who call themselves Christians yet act in very unChristlike ways. Sigh! My heart is fired with passion, so I have trouble being still in the face of injustice. I feel like a rock crying out.

      Love Nancy

    Nancy, I’m not sure if you still check your email at I sent you pictures of the Scotties raised in Emmett and wanted you to see an amazing set of photos called Things You Seldom See.

    Also wanted to share this with you, maybe it will lift your spirits:

    O God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart. Illumine my powers. I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. Thou art my Guide and my Refuge. I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being. O God! I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me. I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life. O God! Thou are more friend to me than I am to myself. I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.–‘Abdu’l-Baha

      Thank you, dear friend, for such a lovely prayer. As you probably have seen by now, I’ve shared it with others. I am going to print it out and post it around the house so that I can take a breath now and then and rest. Life around this place is extremely pleasant and joyful, just busy, busy, busy. And sometimes I forget to rest in the One Who is the only One that gives us rest.

      I didn’t see the email, but will go back and check it out and see the amazing photos that I seldom see!

      Thank you, loving friend, for being such a good One. Nancy
