The Circle of Life

Phone calls can generally be assigned into three categories: MUNDANE, GOOD, BAD.

Yesterday I got one each in the latter two.

Princess Leah (Wisker's sister) and Pete the Prince had a 6.3 pound /19 inch baby boy.  Big sister Queen Nora is ecstatic, she now has a baby brother.  Henry James Silas was a little early but not in as much of a rush as Nora was a few years back.  No further details are available.

My son also called to inform me that one of his good friends died overnight Wed/Thu.  Marlene was a contemporary of his and I had known her since her late teens.  She had some major medical issues that she dealt with bravely and quietly.  A single mother, it was her 12yo daughter who found her.  She apparently passed quietly in her sleep.  R.I.P.

The Beauty of Photography

These three images make me think of "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy
The first one is from BC and the other two are from India.
