    (this blog is recorded on the full page: quick time player needed; works best with Firefox) Sometimes I am aware of the great number of things that can happen in a day, building step by step into a week, month, year, and then years, and it seems time is flying by. In life’s fast forward blur we may wonder where our life has gone. If we can stop our harried pace, rewinding to look back, awake with grateful vision, we can see the rich tapestry of our life, appreciating our many blessings. This...

    Apparently there is no record of Marie Antoinette ever having said this favourite line when told that the common people were starving. One thing is for sure: I did bake a cake yesterday and here it is. At least this is a photographic record that it existed.
