Loving reading old journals

I picked a journal out of the bookshelf today at random, and read about staying
at our school house in Nova Scotia when the boys were young. Getting out
of the city, and driving across the country was so magical for us. Our school
house a place of peace —an escape from busy city life. 

In the Month of Love thinking about our wonderful friends in Nova Scotia makes
us happy.  And thinking about the stars so thick in the night sky brings
back memories of night walks with no traffic on the highway.

It is a sad day, and people all over the world are linked in sorrow for Ukrainians
under attack in a horrific, needless war. We drove to the lake and fed the hungry
birds—geese, ducks and one swan. It lifted our sorrow. But our hearts are still linked
to all of the people in the Ukraine, and the rest of the world suffering through war
and devastation. 

Let’s unite for peace.

Hi Jennifer Rose,

He certainly could. It is quite wonderful. We tend to go in late summer, early
fall -- and it is always beautiful.
