Evening thoughts

Waiting for the better half to return from London I've been reading the new Oxford University history of Germany . Skimming the pages I came across the following comment by Martin Niemoller,a former concentration camp inmate, who wrote in 1945 about the German church during the war : " We reproach ourselves for not witnessing more courageously,for not praying more faithfully,for not believing more joyously,and for not loving more ardently". Even today , no matter what ones creed or belief it's not a bad guide for life in a troubled world.

We have to agree.

And a beautiful picture.
