The Holy Work

IMG_0397

To the Browns Twenty-five Mesa

He presented to us
a bag of brown beans.
The work of growing food
begins with irrigating the fields,
he said,
then planting seeds…
more irrigation
and finally harvesting.

It is holy work,
like teachers and the holy men do,
the growing of food.
It Is something sacred:
work and joy together.

Note:  Linda Brown blogs at https://coloradofarmlife.com.  Tom and I visited her and Terry, her husband, during our trip to Colorado.

Cascade Falls, San Juan Mountains

Cascade Falls, San Juan MountainsI am headed to New Mexico and Navajo Technical University, but will drive past this spot in the San Juans on the weekend in order to visit my mother in the nursing home in Grand Junction.  Kevin took a group of photos in the San Juans when visiting us when we lived in Continental Divide, NM.  Ethel and I treasure all of his photos, of course, but I have a special place in my spirit for his Colorado photos.
