How Appropriate!

My Christmas cactus is blooming… now that it is Easter. How appropriate! We leave in a few minutes for Ethiopia. See you on the other side of the ocean…

Gnarled Tree

I am watching the dawn break slowly across the wide expanse of the sky. Navy blue is turning to slate now, with small streaks of light pink and gold. The black silhouette of three barren trees sit against the morning sky. They look especially gnarled, almost ghoulish, against the early dawn.
