Beautiful Bangkok!

“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.” ~ Anita Desai   So here I am in Thailand, after a wonderful flight, with many good movies and some delicious (really!) food. We got into our hotel at about 10.30pm local time, after midnight by my body clock, and Ben made the sensible choice and […]

The Non-Believer and the Desperate Hour

“Desperation can make a person do surprising things.” ~ Veronica Roth   *This post is a continuation from yesterday’s The Non-Believer and The Amazing Offer Sunday was a rare crisis-of-faith day for me.

The only difference is their altitude.” ~ Ben Phillips   It’s Autumn here at the farm. Perfect burning weather. The local farmers all build burn piles […]
