Happy St Paddy's day

St Paddy's Day Egreeting



May you be poor in misfortunes,
and rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness,
from this day forward,
May good luck be your friend,
In whatever you do,
And may trouble be always,
A stranger to you.

Sangre Grande



day break--
white egrets fly toward
the sun rising


Twenty two days or so without rain. Dawn shadows playfully cajole the fleeting coolness of another soon to be hot Sunday, scenario, and dew glistens to unseeing eyes; our breaths, having breathed in the morning's coolness, we seat ourselves in the mini bus and head out; Feb 28th 2010 around 5:30 AM; to another of our churches; this year to Sangre Grande; " in the late 1770s, Spanish surveyors who were charting the island for the purposes of creating a map, found that the waters of two of the tributaries of the nearby Oropuche River were red as blood, hence the name Sangre Grande; Our agenda:-- church, workshop, then to Manzanilla beach and back, till next year and another retreat

the bush fire smoke
from the hills of Laventille smogs
the highway traffic
