I met Dale Kavanagh back in 1973-74 in Wolfville, Nova Scotia
where she lived and where I was attending Acadia University.
She and Ron were lifeguards together at the university pool.

She has become a well-known classical guitarist 
and one of the guitar world's most gifted interpreters. 


Enjoy her 'magic' and have a wonderful Sunday.

Saturday Morning Post


A little of this, and a little of that kind of week.....


Wild primrose everywhere this summer....


'Second showing' of wild roses/Rugosa Rosa at the park......


Morning cyclists along the 207......


Ron and Sophie chillin on the hill.....


The MacDonald House in mid-summer....


At Herring Cove west of Halifax.....


The Presbyterian Church of Saint David in downtown Halifax....


Beautifully sunlit stained-glass windows in the above church...


Ron and Louise, a friend of Ron's from junior high and visiting here with her family
in Nova Scotia, at Herring Cove last week.


Louise and I dropped in to see my sister, Mim, in downtown
Halifax while Ron was minding Sophie in a local park.


At the park in the city on Thursday while this fog rolled in
 as quickly as it disappeared.....


Found a few 'mutant' (?) pink Queen Anne's Lace blossoms at the park.....
with the tiny drop of 'blood' in the middle.

Contemplative Monday



"When you sit, allow the Buddha in you to sit.
When you walk, allow the Buddha in you to walk.
Enjoy your practice.
If you don't become a Buddha,
who will?"
