Saturday Good Reads



Richard Beck asks, “Is our God too big?” Charity Singleton provides an update on her radiation treatments (what I would call a profile in courage). A myth about a “kelpie,” told poetically. The prairie in autumn. And Vera Lynn (now 92) sings one of what I think is the most romantic songs ever (OK, so I’m a schmuck, but I’m a romantic schmuck).

Thank you for including "The Bad Cook" poem.

Charity and I have connected via FB, and I've been reading her posts. I especially enjoyed the one you single out today; it's strong and honest, and an accurate picture of what goes on in the radiation waiting room.

i like the song "i'll be seeing you." it's one of the songs of that time and that i am glad were written. songs of my parent's generation, and so i am familiar with the them and enjoy them.

autumn woods is a very colourful image. very nice.

good visit, good company.
