Planting at Tom and Kyle’s vineyard 2010

Here are some of the results of planting grapes. Eeeuuu, the children tell me the blackness usually washes and wears off before too awfully long. These are the hands of a cellist. I almost cringe at the thought of those talented hands in such a condition. But there is...

A Time for Everything

A time for everything For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to break down, and a time to...
