Dear Readers

My wish for you at this time is to be well and to stay well.  Like many of you, I have been watching the news, searching the web, reading books and articles about the current pandemic.   If you are not oversaturated with information, I hope you find these articles helpful.   I am not a medical doctor so I won’t attempt to make suggestions along those lines, but it stands to reason that keeping healthy with good nutrition and moderate exercise is  a good regimen for these times.   Through my nonprofit work with the environment, I  promote natural foods and products and believe that a good diet is always foundational.   That said, listen to the experts regarding your health at this time and take very good care.   Though I don’t  know you all personally, know that I am praying for you and rooting for you.

A POEM

Let Evening Come

Let the light of late afternoon
shine through chinks in the barn, moving
up the bales as the sun moves down.
Let the cricket take up chafing
as a woman takes up her needles
and her yarn. Let evening come.
Let dew collect on the hoe abandoned
in long grass. Let the stars appear
and the moon disclose her silver horn.
Let the fox go back to its sandy den.
Let the wind die down. Let the shed
go black inside. Let evening come.
To the bottle in the ditch, to the scoop
in the oats, to air in the lung
let evening come.
Let it come, as it will, and don’t
be afraid. God does not leave us
comfortless, so let evening come.
