A couple of years ago, my husband and I visited Minnehaha Falls. Autumn was almost gone but the light was still golden, the temperature pleasant, and my camera ready. It was the ideal setting for some nice photos until I noticed a bunch of kids hovering around. Sitting by the edge of the water, resting against the large stones, scattered between the trees, “ruining” my perfect picture.
After several tries to capture just the falls and feeling disappointed, I was ready to quit when my husband said: “Look at them; they are meditating and praying.” They were a group of summer campers from different places reunited at that time and place to find God in Nature.
And then I saw my Angel of the Falls, sitting on a large stone in the middle of the stream, with his eyes closed and his head resting on his arms.
Nameless and ageless, he will stay like that forever.

Having been a tradition for the last quarter of a century, the Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens will host its 25th Running on Saturday November 7th.
This year, for the first time, the organizers have added a Vendor Village Tent and we will be exhibiting there.

There will be bagpipers and blacksmiths, the parade of the Midland Foxhounds, the Southern Views Hat Contest, the Sunny 100 Tailgate Competition and the Ledger-Enquirer Terrace Box Competition.
Hope to see you there.
Although there are many different hues of blue, almost all of them are appealing and refreshing. As the predominant color of the sky, as well as lakes, streams and oceans; blue indicates freedom and space and therefore is one of the more relaxing colors in the spectrum.

Last summer was the drought, this one the floods. There are still a lot of people in Atlanta and its suburbs suffering its consequences. In our case, thankfully, the water was just a nuisance.
The picture shows the water covering half of the fountain’s lower tier and transforming our backyard into a small shallow lake.
