Raphaella's garden, July 4th, 2008
It's a quiet, gray day here. This afternoon and evening, there will most likely be rain. I'm looking forward to the quiet, to rest, to a bit of calm in my own safe little corner of the world.
All my good thoughts and prayers go out to those folks who've chosen to give up a world of family barbecues and fireworks displays in order to protect the peace here.
Thank you so much for this gift.
