Fran’s Birthday and DeSoto Falls

Yesterday was Fran’s birthday, and she wanted to spend part of it in the North Georgia mountains. So I took the day off from work and we drove up to White County where there are several majestic waterfalls. We both had cameras with us: she had her fancy Nikon D40X, while I had my more humble Kodak 6490. But even the Kodak can take some nice photos for the web.

After Rhiannon finished her day program, she and I wrapped Fran’s gifts (two books, of course) and treated her to dinner at her favorite Thai restaurant. And today the festivities continue: after going to hear Sarah Miles speak at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in downtown Atlanta, this evening we’re going to a concert by Point of Grace.

    Bayrak, I don’t know how to take that question. Haven’t you ever got drawn in by beauty or enveloped in it? What does it conjure up in your mind? That’s what I call “speaking.” Read Carl’s latest about the wasp. His sense of wonder is beautiful. I always thank God for His magnificent creation. It comes in all languages. judy
