When last I listed some movies watched, I only listed six. I've got such a backlog, I don't know why I stopped so short. (Perhaps because six is how many it takes to get an eggroll. Har, har.) Therefore, today you get eight!

At the northern end of the reservoir, we kayak north, where the water flows into the Black River, crossing the Canadian border on its meandering way to the Atlantic.

Translation of poem by ANNA AKHMATOVA, "Все расхищено, предано, продано," "Everything's plundered, betrayed . . ."
Все расхищено, предано, продано,
Черной смерти мелькало крыло,
Все голодной тоскою изглодано,
Отчего же нам стало светло?
Днем дыханьями веет вишневыми
Небывалый под городом лес,
Ночью блещет созвездьями... новыми
Глубь прозрачных июльск... Read more of this blog post »

Summer of true love,
It wont last; there are other plans from above,
Memories of embracing and sharing,
She is the one he will think of when he is old and in pain; he will remember her truly always caring,
Sunsets after the heavy rain,
She was his natural beauty and never vain,
Living for the moment,

Faithful God, before we offer up those things in our lives that we are most worried about; those concerns that are draining our energy and making our hearts heavy, we first confess our pride.
