In the context of St. Patrick's Day, I celebrate Ireland's beauty, the great contributions it has made to history, to spirituality, to music and to culture.

This photo was taken in the Ottawa Valley - old log barns in Lanark County, with 'newer' yet. The wonder is they've survived so long, still used for intending purpose.

Ruins in Ephesus

Walking through Ephesus (in modern day Turkey), recently, was an incredible experience. It is ‘up and down’ terrain, situated in a long sloping valley between two mountains.
