“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost..”

~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring


I’ve been awake since a ridiculous hour. The stillness of morning an opportunity to reflect on all manner of things, ensuring that I won’t fall back asleep, so I give in to my wakefulness.

I pray, read, wrangle words, make plans, change plans, wrestle with pain in my back, and wonder if it’s too early to grind beans for coffee.

The day begins.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm here early most mornings with one of my photos and a few words about life and those thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I run out of words to describe your incredible photos, Linda.

    1. Thanks so much for your encouraging words, Karen.

  2. Never too early to grind beans for coffee! I was awake once this week at about 2:00 am…I did not have to grind, but I did make coffee. I figured as long as I was wide awake, I may as way get productive. But it stinks when I have to go to work that day and then I start to hit the wall around lunchtime.

    1. One of the greatest blessings of this stage in my life is not having to get up and go to work after a sleepless night. I remember that torture very well!

  3. It’s never too early for coffee . Have you tried yoga for your back . Please don’t freak out and think I’m talking mumbo jumbo . Check out Barbra Curry dvds really gentle yoga and it does reduce stiffness have a go .

    1. Thank you, Cherry. While I do have a back issue, that’s not what’s sidelined me right now,
