where shall we get
religion? beneath the open sky, the sphere of crystal silence surcharged with deity the midnight earth sends incense up, sweet with the breath of prayer go out beneath the naked night and get religion there ~sam walter foss~
In these days of snowstorms and frigid temps, I go back.
I go back in my mind to a life in Isla Mujeres, Mexico.
My home was orange, red, yellow, blues and greens.
The bright colors,enormous smiles, snow white beach
and azure waters...oh Mexico
