"So prayer is our sometimes real selves trying to communicate with the Real, with Truth, with the Light. It is us reaching out to be heard, hoping to be found by a light and warmth in the world, instead of darkness and cold. Even mushrooms respond to light - I suppose they blink their mushroomy eyes, like the rest of us."

Wordless Wednesday: Manzanita Grove in Winter

Posted by Picasa


  1. Yes manzanita, so pretty, so vile. It is a beautiful tree in its own right nonetheless we have cleared most of it off of our small property.

  2. The manzanita bush is so beautiful. As a young girl I remember crawling around under them when we were hunting mushrooms. As a young married couple my husband and I had a manzanita bush for a Christmas tree, it was quite unusual, painted white, strands and strands of tinsel. I am going to have to go through my old photos to see if I may have a picture of it. Have a great day

  3. The manzanita's are beautiful, they are in the mountains of AZ too, Payson srea.
