This is a cemetery at Almaden Quicksilver Park in California.
Every time I'm here, it strikes me that even the grave markers are gone. Miners are buried here, a reminder of days when death was common.
The people buried here...their children are gone, grandchildren are old...they are...unknown
That's me standing behind the "float copper" in Marquette, MI
My son said this reminded him of "Vlad the Impaler" - but it's really a sculpture from the Chihuly exhibit at Meijer Garden a couple of years ago.
- not very imaginative...
My favorite campsite (lately). From South Manitou Island backpacking trip.
the view of the beach...
the view from my tent...
I was in Indiana Tuesday with my sister-in-law Judy. We went on a "quilt tour" in Amish country and saw this mural and this (below) garden
(the quilt pattern of the garden is "Lone Star".
For more information on the tour, visit this site.
That's my backpack...hanging from the tree so that the "micro bears" (chipmonks) won't get into it.
It didn't work
At least for the time being...I've got posts on all sorts of topics coming off my keyboard and I tend to enjoy blogs more where I don't have to scroll down a bunch to read all the new posts...so I'm going to try to "schedule" mine a little bit.
I've got a post on the "gift of tongues" in pagan religions (including Mormonism), I've got a post on Christ and church/husbands and wives/Adam and Eve. I'd like to cover the life and times (and theology) of John Calvin. And there's a lot of political stuff going on that is interesting (especially since Michigan has the worst single-state economy in the country...what Granholm has done for Michigan, Obama wants to do for the country.
There's also room for "randomosity". Mostly I know that I can have a tendency to become a "one trick pony" and I'm not that. A flexible basic outline keeps me from hyperfocusing.
Sunday seems good for Sola (Reformed stuff) - also, randomosity.
Monday (lunes in Spanish) seems to be the day for the links I've collected over the week. I'm going to start adding links to my other "little" blogspot blogs, which include diet/exercise and what I'm reading.
Tuesday (I don't why) I'll think more philosophically. Other world religions, deep thoughts about life and living. Stuff.
Wednesday is a good day for the "gender" topic (and Wordless Wednesday)
Thursday...Thursday photo challenge (my favorite photo scavenger hunt) and politics
Friday, Fit Friday
Saturday: TN Photo Hunt (my other favorite photo scavenger hunt) and denominational stuff (although that can overlap with politics...and philosophy. And gender).
Just so you all know...I'm enjoying blogging, but I love variety...
