“What a life is ours!
Doesn’t anybody in the world
anymore want to get up in the
middle of the night and sing?”

~ Mary Oliver

Actually I’d rather sleep but these nights that seems elusive. More time for praying, more time for reading, it’s not all bad I suppose.

We are planning on going to a movie this evening I just hope I can stay awake. We haven’t been to a movie theatre in a decade or so; there’s very little in entertainment that interests us. Making an exception for this one, more about that tomorrow.

Today, I need to see a doctor to get a prescription refill. No big deal except in this land of no doctors it means standing in line, outdoors, first thing in the morning, at a walk-in clinic, to get an appointment. Love is braving the cold and doing this to get an appointment for your wife.

It’s Monday, the start of a new week of possibility. Let’s make it count.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things.
  1. You’ve captured something very haunting in the beauty of the flowers…they are spectacular.

    1. Tamara, thanks so much, my friend.

  2. I know what you mean about waiting in line especially for doctors. WE live in northern Alberta so have to drive 30 min to the doctors office and wait for about 2 hours to get seen. Takes up a good chunk of the day for sure. Love this photo. The shadows are lovely!

    1. We certainly have some “opportunities” in the medical field in this country, don’t we Kathy. We just moved back to Canada from the US three years ago and the contrast, in terms of care, between the two countries is glaring. There’s good and bad in both systems, I’d just be happy if we could get some more doctors.
