On a drift of air
that circles the globe
from heart to heart,
continent to continent –
words of a carol

Creative Notes and Photos

Jan Karon’s novels are a part of my life.  I reread a few of her recent books this year.

Her new book, to be published this fall, is Bathed in Prayer: Father Tim’s Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections from the Mitford Series.

for wise men to follow,
