Sunday with Downpours and Walks In the Rain..

"I love any and all situations where you celebrate creativity."
~ Brad Paisley

"People wish to be poets more than they wish to write poetry, and that's a mistake. One should wish to celebrate more than one wishes to be celebrated."
~ Lucille Clifton

"Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words."
~ Plautus

Leo- in New Mexico there is a Church built over a hole.. I went there and stood in a long line to get some holy dirt.. they only allow small amounts per person.. the path to and all the areas around place is full of wheel chairs and crutches and crosses of all kinds and sizes.. a man ther laughingly told us thast the priest re-filled the hole every night.. I looked it up later and they do indeed re-fill the hole.. the ground there is supposed to be healing..

Jingle~ I am often squatted or laying on the ground or in this case a tank to make a picture..

Cassiopeia Rises~ the flow of time.. ahh what a wonderful idea.. thanks for your visit..

Missy~ I am glad you enjoyed your visit to my world! Thanks!

The Write Girl~ having lost a few people who I personally knew in the war on terror I love to give them tribute any time I can.. I wanted to see the area in the rain..

Bridgett~ Denise~ Jenny~ Jac~ every time I see the dog tags I feel full of emotion..and almost overwhelmed..

Thanks top all of you who visited here today.. Have a wonderful day!
