Landscape rock in neighbors’ yard …

Maybe they’ve been bargaining with Astral Prospecting ;-)


Successfully repeated the workflows again today which gave me time off in the afternoon to tend to other matters. I was able to include some social media and email correspondence in addition to my posting routines. I’m cautiously optimistic!


Astral Prospecting snapped this “Mail Pouch Chewing Tobacco barn.”

Do you know Harley Warrick? Apparently, he painted many of them during the post-WWII period. The link embedded in the opening question leads to a short bio about him.

The systematic pursuit of the Plan in all its dimensions gives rise to a pattern of collective endeavour distinguished not only for its commitment to service, but also for its attraction to worship. The intensification of activity which the next five years requires will further enrich the devotional life shared by those who serve side by side in clusters around the world. This process of enrichment is already much advanced: witness, for instance, how gatherings for worship have been integrated into the core of community life. Devotional meetings are occasions where any soul may enter, inhale the heavenly fragrances, experience the sweetness of prayer, meditate upon the Creative Word, be transported on the wings of the spirit, and commune with the one Beloved. Feelings of fellowship and common cause are generated, particularly in the spiritually heightened conversations that naturally occur at such times and through which the “city of the human heart” may be opened. By convening a gathering for worship at which adults and children of any background are welcome, the spirit of the Mashriqu’l-Adhkár is evoked in any locality. The enhancement of the devotional character of a community also has an effect on the Nineteen Day Feast and can be felt at other times when the friends come together. 1
