MLK Jr Day 2012

..."Never before have I written so long a letter. I'm afraid it is much too long to take your precious time. I can assure you that it would have been much shorter if I had been writing from a comfortable desk, but what else can one do when he is alone in a narrow jail cell, other than write long letters, think long thoughts and pray long prayers?"

boot hill

i met someone today who is dying of cancer, and maybe for that reason, i decided to visit a local graveyard.

then i met someone whose mother died last august. her mother made quilts, and at her funeral, those quilts decorated the church.

they both wanted to talk, so we did.

spanish moss...

was once used to create horse blankets for soldiers (but i like to imagine it being used as a secret cloak, for creatures who must switch from a life as birds by day, and return to human form, at night).
