among the small joys: 
three evenings ago, 
riding back into town and sharing time beside this little creek at dusk ....

the bannister

the bannister in our home 
catching colour and light 
that has passed through a piece of stained glass at the entranceway . . .

all of a sudden . . .

on a recent afternoon, i got on my bike and i chose to sit beside jackson creek at the intersection of murray and bethune . . . the trees waited for the rain last night . . .who knew that is what they were doing . . . and all of a sudden, the colours arrived . . . in the creek, colours are melting and rushing downstream . . .

My Mum's Birthday!

On this day, my Mum begins another lap of the sun.

My Mum is very much my anchor 
as my life
 is filled with all the wonderful and trying challenges 
that this world has to offer.
. . 

She has been challenged by life in many ways
-some wonderful, some not so wonderful-
and has always found a way
to meet those challenges.

She is simply, an amazing person. 

As I have the privilege of learning about her life,
 and gaining a more solid understanding of how she is who she has become, 
I am compelled to wish for many many more years with her 
so as to continue to share the unfolding of each of our lives . . . . 

I love you Mum
