Postcards from Here: plus some sapling talk

These days, my writing effort is going into work on a book (assuming I can get out of my own way, and stay there).  But I also want to stay on the blog.  So with your permission, let me introduce a new series I’m calling Postcards from Here.

The idea is that through the course of a week, I will put my camera to work every day except Shabbat.  Regardless of the nature of the day, my mood, my obligations, I will try to give attention to at least one moment.  Then I’ll post some of the better pics here.  And if a worthwhile teaching comes to mind – my own or one that merits plagiarizing – I may try to slip it in when you’re not looking.  Who knows?  Maybe I’ll actually heed the teachings I offer.
