"Nothing Could Be Finer...

than to be in Carolina in the morororning!" We're actually in Georgia, in Sky Valley. But right up the road a few miles is Highlands, N.C. which is one of my favorite places on earth. We are swimming and fishing and playing in streams with our friends, the Wilsons, and I have so many cool pictures but can't get them up here on this computer. So imagine Nicolas looking down through the mists of a waterfall spray from a scary peak up above. Imagine Gillen and his friend Logan searching for fossils in the stream beds and imagine me pretending to be an olympic racer in the pool and then passing out. It has been a great week, even when it was raining and we just watched "Star Wars" movies, "Big", and "Robin Hood" episodes (the BBC series) for an entire day. I wish that I could find a way to capture the bright smell of the mountains to take home with me.

the words
you have breathed
will hand in the air
for the next
to breathe deeply

Wow, sounds amazing, You created a beautiful picture in my mind through your words so maybe it wasn't such a bad thing that the pics couldn't be uploaded! Enjoy

At The Seaside

(1)

When I was down beside the sea

A wooden spade they gave to me

To dig the sandy shore.

(2)

The holes were empty like a cup

In every hole the sea camp up,

Till it could come no more.
