Images of Labor Day 

We had fireworks and boat parade of lights on Saturday.
Then on Sunday what you see above is what is called
'Parade of Sail' ~ Schooners of all sizes. What I imagine
the harbor looked like in the 1800's.

Sharing 'across the pond' with ABC Wednesday and
the letter is I ~ Images




Thursday ~ 
Marshall gets 'double 'billing' (see Saturday Critters link) ~ He was not happy being isolated for bad behavior behind gated fence.

Friday ~ 
A haiku and Asian style painting from my artist journal.

  31. Beautifully penned lively Haiku.

    "seasons guide his soul." If I were writing this I had chosen "nature" in the place of"season" but your write made me realise that you have used more appropriate and word.

  58. i love your haiku deeply. here-as the garden is in full harvest glory, as the wind sings an autumn song; summer bows to fall. it is in the sowing of seeds, the tending, the gathering, the intimacy with earth and sky peace resides.
