Christmas Day 2013

O Love that passeth knowledge, thee I need;

Pour in the heavenly sunshine; fill my heart;

Scatter the cloud, the doubting, and the dread —

The joy unspeakable to me impart.

~H. Bonar

Strange Waters

Strange Waters
Rainy Season in the Tropics. Frederic Edwin Church.

“‘Water.” So much meaning in a simple sound… ‘Survival is the ability to swim in strange water….we must find the currents and patterns in these strange waters…if we are to survive.’”  from Frank Herbert’s Dune
