Countdown Day 13: Flyer Mergansers

...over the muddy Rollins Reservoir one day last month.

I saw an EB White quote on a friend's blog just the other day. It reminded me of everyday when we awaken: "I arise in the morning torn between a desire to save the world and a desire to savor the world. That makes it hard to plan the day."

Did I mention that I'm going to try and post a photo every day during Roger's last chemotherapy cycle? It's a celebration of joy and beauty all at once!

  11. Been thinking of you two often. My time has come Roger---two weeks of crisis. ER visits and unbelievable pain. They are testing PSA now for cancer. Hold a thought for healing, you are my inspiration for strength and a positive view. peace, m
