deeply, strongly, bad or good
building the future

  6. That's a very beautiful picture and the poem goes well with it. I may have to write something about my father, grandfathers, and ex-husband at the Funhouse. I don't want to go on and on here!
    Our society is so focused on youth that they often forget the beauty in age. And here we see the aged and the very young together in a happy way.

  9. Since your visit I gave you credit on my blog for 'sending me' to Sensational Haiku Wednesday.
    That might make me count for you in next week's referral contest. Or it might have been too soon.
