A QUOTE TO START THINGS OFF

"Whatever the limitations of his intellect or outward shortcomings of his fur, and his ears and toes, his disposition was uniformly amiable and his temper unfailingly sweet. An affectionate companion and a quiet friend."
Beatrix Potter on the passing of her favorite rabbit, Peter Piper (the inspiration for her story Peter Rabbit) in 1902,

A Poem: March 11th

March 11th
written 3-11-93 Russia
Two days before my Brother's birthday
Eleven days before my Dad's
Yesterday, it meant only tomorrow
In a few hours, the roles will be reversed
Just another day

Life in another country
New experiences each day
Man has a way
Of making the extraordinary
Commonplace

Russia
Living in former Godless Russia
As a missionary
I've preached at church services
In old communist buildings

But today is just a day
Not special
Today I spoke to Russian students
Little spiritual knowledge
But much curiosity

But today is just a day
God forgive me
