Never would I have thought I would start
writing at 73 years of age. I have thoroughly enjoyed my voyage into the written spirituality of poetry and am thankful for the opportunity.  In my four years here I have met many new and wonderful persons. Having them accept me as a friend has been a moving experience.

Mauve cotton Fields

Barbara made a comment that she would like to see the mauve cotton fields I wrote about the other day.  I wasn't sure I could find a picture like that because the field really isn't that color but only appears that way.  I don't know how the photographer captured this so well but it is what I was writing about.  Hold down the control key and click the link above.

    Chas, a great pic, it's a bit like the Blue Mountains in Sydney the heat makes the oil from the Eucalyptus trees rise and it gives it the famous 'Blue' appearence...David
