Pardon me! Here at Eagle's Falls on Emerald Bay on the west shore of Lake Tahoe I had gotten two much sun. And, silly as my look appears, it was my 71st birthday and I wasam experiencing a GREAT JOY and and even greater GRATITUDE for the gift of MY LIFE and also for the GIFT OF ALL LIFE. I do hope that all strife, wars, greed, injustice, selfishnesss, ingratitude and all kinds of behaviour that do not reflect the CREATOR'S LOVE FOR US AND GOODNESS IN US come to and end in the near future......I have a ministry in the local jail here in Kingston, NY. A phrase that came to me recently, and it is something I share with the inmates when they share with me their sorrow, shame and sadness for the mistakes they have made and the people they have hurt. I say, Just say this little prayer: LORD, TURN MY SHAME AND REPENTANCE INTO HOPE!

Berkeley flowers "look at" their city. I thought that, just as my brothers and I look and enjoy the beautiful trees, shrubs and abundant flowers of this great town (city?) of Berkeley CA, that the flowers themselves enjoy us who are "enjoying them". So I have been trying to take some pictures of the town from the "flowers' very own point of view".
