At the Botanical Gardens

Pretty much every Sunday Fran, Rhiannon and I drive to Athens, GA, where my father lives. We take him out to lunch and sometimes do other fun stuff — like today, we visited the Georgia Botanical Gardens, to enjoy the fall foliage, which is just now peaking down here in the south.

Here’s a snapshot I took of Dad, Fran, and Rhiannon…


… while Fran took this photo of me, in one of my more “mystical” moments.

  1. For some, thankfully, unexplainable reason, your pic reminds me of Wordsworth, “…trailing clouds of glory..”

    You look like an angel with a beard!

  3. Thank you Carl for a wonderful Website. I frequently check it out. Love those Christian mystics. Your photo in the Botanic Gardens was very touching…maybe because I also have a daughter 21 with significant disabilities and she is much loved, as I can tell your daughter is also. Much appreciate your spiritual insights. Jen.

  4. Yes, yes, All – 3 angels and a coyote in a garden. Perchance a glimpse of the Kingdom.

  5. Nice pictures, Carl, such love in them, and the fingers of God all over you in the second. Thanks for sharing them.

    You all look great! Been a while since I’ve been to the site, full of good material. Lots of love to you and the family.
