Again, we will take a few moments to escape daily reality and read.

This month, we continue the pictures of a river cruise on the Rhine and Mosel, we took awhile back.

Opening Comments from Bob

This Issue: We are all going through an experience like never before in our lifetime. Take a break. Besides the traditional content, the newsletter includes two poems, Flowing and My Special Clock. The pictures were taken a few years ago when we traveled the Rhine and Mosel rivers. Enjoy the other treats.

My Facebook account is again open.

Two Poems this Month


Flowing, flowing
    feel the river of life.
Smiling, smiling
    the warmth of being
    greets you
Loving, loving
    heals the soul
Light, light
    awaits like a beacon
Peace, peace
    the journey completes

Comments: Similar theme as last month's Flow.




My Special Clock

Being many decades old,
    who would have believed
    what simple joys
    a hand painted clock
    could bring me.

The little bird
    resting on its perch
    swings back and forth,
    silently tic tock.

Many hours
    spent at the computer
    writing and writing.
When a brief break is needed
    I peer at the little clock
    and smile before returning.

    I expect it
    to go “cuckoo.”

Comments: Clock is pictured to the right.



The bakeries in Europe are WONDERFUL!



I love my little clock (See rec below.)
