Forty years ago, there would have just been
a husband and wife, and maybe toddlers
tonight there were for at least two families,
two full pews including great-grands

chill of winter night
Christmas Eve in Maine

putting out bird food
St Francis would approve
the sound of crows
two doors down top of tree
two blue jays calling

a “second chance” photo… she had
perched on a limb outside the library window..
I was so stunned to see her so close, and lost
the moment to take the photo… I thought the
image in my mind was a mirage since I could not
find another photo of such a sweet face on an
eagle. She flew to the other side of the pond
and took this photo.

“Jack” is Jack LaLanne
and I realized when I started with
the sitting yoga and the simple yoga
exercises, that many of the exercises
were ones I saw my Mother do along
with Jack on his tv show…
including the mouth exercises !
