I continue to create posts for Bloganuary Prompts at POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN.
Place – Daily Prompt
This morning I posted a poem about the Midwest at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin.
I have thought more about PLACE today, and how the Psalms and prayer are a place of peace for me.
Then I thought about authors and books. Two examples are:
Jan Karon and her Mitford novels – books to reread. Wonderful characters, stories, and a sense of place.
Tracy Balzer and her book, A Journey of Sea and Stone: How Holy Places Guide and Renew Us. I plan to reread this thoughtful book.
Creative Note: The Mitford Museum
Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin
Jan Karon’s novels are excellent. I discovered The Mitford Museum site. The museum is in Hudson, NC and was founded by Jan Karon. The beautiful site includes more information and an online store.
