The Green Room in early morning light
Another side of the green room
A corner
More treasures
"We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem,
but the truth is that things don't really get solved.
They come together and they fall apart again.
It's just like that."
(Pema Chodron)

Area across from the kitchen
Framed Photograph of Edna Hill
Snapshot of Edna Hill from an album

 "Actually everything is simple.  There is one straight road
--if you open your eyes you can go along it.
I don't see the need for all sorts of clever short cuts.
Happiness and sadness are both on the road
--there is no road that avoids them
but peace is found on this road--nowhere else."
(Rabindrenath Tagore)


The Guest Room where I stayed - corner desk at night
Mirror reflects windows overlooking the garden
"Your life is like a filled cup you have got to carry in the midst of crowds"
(Sherwood Anderson)

Red television room at night
Hand-wash drying on the 'patio'
One of two wrought-iron chairs
(sans pillows--rain was due)

Methodist Community Church next door

Sunday service to bid farewell to the Pastor
"The one who gathered more didn't have too much,
and the one who gathered less didn't have too little"
Monday I visited their thrift shop for a $5-per-bag-sale,
and came away with several fine shirts and shorts.

Two travelers happy to be home again

 The End
