Sunday Afternoon Drive

(Les Calanche di Piana and Scandola, Corsica)
There's nothing quite like a Sunday afternoon drive.  Get out there and enjoy creation. 

Home sweet home.

Birds in Flight

 (all photos taken during a week in Kenya - Lake Naivasha, Masai Mara, Samburu, Mt. Kenya)

                      The Windhover by Gerard Manley Hopkins

                      To Christ our Lord

I CAUGHT this morning morning’s minion, king-
  dom of daylight’s dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding
  Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding
High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing
In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing,       
  As a skate’s heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding
  Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding
Stirred for a bird,—the achieve of; the mastery of the thing!
Brute beauty and valour and act, oh, air, pride, plume, here
  Buckle! AND the fire that breaks from thee then, a billion       
Times told lovelier, more dangerous, O my chevalier!
  No wonder of it: shéer plód makes plough down sillion
Shine, and blue-bleak embers, ah my dear,
  Fall, gall themselves, and gash gold-vermillion.

Lunchtime Dance Party

Sometimes you just gotta dance.  What started off as a rainy day lunch turned into an all-out dance party thanks to the inspirational and truly pioneering moves of Silas.  Enjoy. 

  Then a song came on that instructed to take off one's shoe.
