"To every thing, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven..."

Hello blogosphere. I am making a humble return from a cathartic memorial service for my sister, Karen. We played Turn!, Turn!, Turn! as the recessional song. It'll be sticking in my head a while and I don't mind. I somehow feel freer to speak of her now that she has stepped out of this world into the next. She passed from liver cancer. She was a wonderful person and a dedicated physician, and many of her patients paid their respects at the service. After great difficulties in this life, I do feel she is at peace.

This shot is lovely, and it just happened to be from coastal Connecticut near where Karen spent her childhood and learned to love the water. What a sky!! But that's not all there is to this shot, because it also has a real sense of neighborhood to it.

Unfortunatey, I cannot post the above shot in large on black, so today you get a bonus second shot that I can post IN LARGE ON BLACK...
