( words: Ernest Hemingway ~ ` ~ The old man & the sea )
When despair for the world grows in me,
and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be —

For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
~~ Wendell Berry

and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
before my lens…..
Trust freely the strength
of the wind…
