What a contrast with the previous series! Those images are very nice, but a little sadly, dear friend.

How are you, Yan, what yours plans for the future? I hope that you have already a little rest and take to changes easily. It seems to me that you are always on the go!

I am on the go today, dear Eva. Heading north with a car load of house-plants, framed photographs and special things to prepare our home for the next stage of our life. And instead of driving there in one day, as I used to, now it will be a three day wander, camera at the ready. Hope the rain clears for some of my travel.

There is sadness in parting, but joy in finishing well and deepest gratitude for the privileged journey I have been on. Yet I know of new calling and feel as if I am in the grip of grace.

Yet, as I look at this scene of unfulfilled plans, bathed in the richness of desert colour, my concern opens up to those who do not experience the privilege of grace in every day life.

Appreciative of your friendship and understanding,
