I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

Why harm innocent children
My heart is heavy

With howling winds
Rain pouring down

Sitting Silent

A small plaque reads:
Built in 1895
abandoned in 1914
Nothing more.
Sad that this beautiful church
has sat silent for 100 years.
It is however
 in the middle
 of nowhere.
I'd love to know its story.
