" Hold fast to your dreams, for if dreams die,
life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly."
~ Langston Hughes
American Poet, 1902- 1967
The Westin La Paloma hostess graciously accommodated my desire to share the magic of brunch without my lens intruding on the privacy of the other diners by opening the quiet side of the dining patio.
The little birdies birds hover over left over crumbs on the tray drive staff batty - but really, don't you find their bold innocence charming?
My waistline never missed the little bit of egg soaked English muffin set on the water feature's ledge.
There is magic created whenever we commune with nature. Near our patio is a fountain. I feel inspired to set near it a platform where we might literally break bread with our feathered neighbors.

It is my prayer to make it to the top of the waiting list at Native Seeds SEARCH for the beautiful Glass Gm corn. The un-retouched photo, borrowed from their web site has created quite a waiting list ahead of me.
Last week was my 37th Anniversary. I would like you to know something of him, for my life would not be all that is has been without Gerry's love, fidelity, sacrifice and companionship. But I don't want this story of a uniquely American man lost among other details. So if God and the computer are willing, I will post my homage to a very good man tomorrow. And if there is only one post of mine you ever read- let it be this next story.
God bless you all for coming by.
