Stonehenge, circa 1985

The years teach much which the days never knew. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
~ T.S. Eliot, 1943

*The photo of Stonehenge was taken by me on my first trip to England in 1985 with my Olympus OM1.

Sleeping Adventures

When I begin

to think
My dreams
have been lost
I lean out my window

Let the scent
of the flowers
in my room
mingle with the magic
of the the flowing river
and the purple heather
in the distance.

Surely this is
the stuff
dreams are made of.

And even when
I open my eyes
to find I am
still in my bed
in a small room
without a view
without the heather
without the river
I know my dreams
are alive and well
and living in my heart
and my sleeping adventures.
