Spring 2015

Here in Southern California Springtime can happen
anytime, it seems. Today it is official though--and we
celebrate with thoughts of gardening.

On this day as we celebrate the

Faith and stories of the Irish,

We thank them also for lighting 

our world with song. . . sing along.

Limerick You’re My Lady by Denis Allen

Limerick You're My Lady
your Shannon waters tears of joy that flows
the beauty that surrounds you
I think about you love where e're I go
While waking in the arms of distant waters
a new day finds me far away from home
and Limerick You're My Lady
the one true love that I have ever known

The days when you and I spent endless days of fun
in winter snows and summer's golden sun
we fished in silver streams, the fabric of my dreams
was fashioned by your loveliness
so now I have to say


A gift that time has made to travelers on their way
seeking out the beauty of our land
a shrine where children play
the bells ring out to say
that's God that we're alive to see the freedom of each day


        Dublin, Lamp Post 2012

May you have blessings, pleasures, friends
To gladden all life's way . . .
Today and every day

Example: a simple yucca tree at 6:28 p.m
this evening, about one-half  hour before
the sun set.

As a creative individual, do you know,
have you come to realize, that you also
have a magic hour?

Maybe it occurs in the early morning
quiet before the sun appears or perhaps
at night when everyone else has retired.

Do we honor that special time in our daily
