I never had any other desire so strong, and so like to covetouseness, as that one which I have had always, that I might be master at last of a small house and a large garden.
- Abraham Cowley, "The Garden" (1666)

The times they are a' changin'.........

It has been a time of lots of changes. We have sold our house and moved. This is not our new place. This is Royal Roads  - a beautiful castle, and garden that we visited on Mothers Day!

We must be willing to get rid of the life we had planned, so as to have the life that is waiting. - Joseph Campbell
We haven't found a house to buy so we are renting - and waiting - and trying to stop and smell the flowers..... 
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. - Psalm 3:5-6
Still keeping our dreams alive...

God send us a little home to come back to, when we roam...
red firelight and deep chairs,
small white beds upstairs -
Great talks in little nooks,
dim colors, rows of books,
One picture on each wall,
not many things at all.
God send us a little ground,
Tall trees stand, round homely flowers in brown sod,
overhead, thy stars, O God.
God Bless thee, when winds blow,
our home,
and all we know.
- Florence Bone
