Jacob’s Proposal
Down Baja way, there is a very small fishing village called Loreto. There, just off the coast in the Sea of Cortez is the uninhabited volcanic isle of Coronado where the snorkeling is excellent. Here a very special beach was the venue for this tale.

The Growing Trees

When I was a younger man,
So many years ago,
I looked out of the window
To see them in a row,
Well established conifers
Growing on the hill,
Level with a tiled roof
Beyond my window sill.

Today I paused reflecting,
Gazing through the glass.
I see the trees grew taller
As those years come and pass.
Their trunks are soaring upwards,
Crowns stark again the sky.
While they shall all continue on
My life is passing by.

Solar Furnace
(Left to their own devices young boys can be cruel rascals; strings attached to cats tails is an example.  The solar furnace kept us amused for hours.)
