Look to the Sky— Sunday, July 17, 2016


The Full Buck Moon or the Full Thunder Moon will occur July 19, 2016 (6:56 pm ET).

TomatoesJuly…We are experiencing Hot Summer Days and Hot Summer nights.  The heat shimmers like deep violet then fades into blue-black immensity

Yard-1By morning the air has thinned and crisped like distant stars in the sky–a huge relief

Yard-2The Sun rises

Yard-3And the day begins, the balance of our waking hours filled with the immensity of each minute and hour

Yard-10 Then it is night again. The sky swimming with stars, the silver globe of the moon; illuminating the void

Hot-Summer-night-3With that sky so immense it boggles my mind, knowing that it covers you AND I.

No wonder people look to the sky when talking to God…that huge expanse so near at hand, yet so far.

Hot-Summer-Night-1From my world to your heart,

  2. Hi Linda, Your photos are beautiful! I am your distant cousin from TX. Bruce Shipley’s daughter. My sister and I will be visiting Delta this summer, would you be so kind as to email me where Laura DeArmond Shipley Ware’s grave is if you know and any other of my father’s sisters and brothers. We would really appreciate it. Thank you
