This is my home in Park City, above Jeremy Ranch. It was a kit that was built in 1979. No yard. Moose sometimes next to the  house. A wood stove. Wildflowers and a good garage. Simple. Always something to fix. Great views. Mostly good neighbors. 8808 North Cove Dr.  You are always welcome.

just to say the word
home, that one word alone,
so pleasantly cool


One of the four foremost poets of Japanese haiku tradition, Issa was born in 1763. His poems are full of gentle humor and the tension between life and death and hope.
In some ways our whole lives are the search to find a home or to return to our home or both. At its very best, a congregation can be a home, where one finds welcome and challenge, food and faith.

  1. Issa is one of my favorites, too. I love his humour and deep thoughts.
