Nearer than (his) jugular vein

“It was We Who created man, & We know what dark suggestions his soul makes to him: for We are nearer to him than (his) jugular vein.

Behold, two (guardian angels) appointed to learn (his doings) learn (& noted them), one sitting on the right & one on the left.

Not a word does he utter but there is a sentinel by him, ready (to note it).

And the stupor of death will bring Truth (before his eyes): “This was the thing which thou wast trying to escape!”” [50:16-19]

2 our Lord, surely, must we turn back!

“But how many were the prophets We sent amongst the peoples of old?

And never came there a prophet to them but they mocked him.

So We destroyed (them)- stronger in power than these;- & (thus) has passed on the Parable of the peoples of old. Continue reading

“Every soul that hath sinned, if it possessed all that is on earth, would fain give it in ransom: They would declare (their) repentance when they see the penalty: but the judgment between them will be with justice, & no wrong will be done unto them.

Is it not (the case) that to Allah belongeth whatever is in the heavens & on earth? Is it not (the case) that Allah’s promise is assuredly true? Yet most of them understand not. Continue reading

“Allah did aforetime take a covenant from the Children of Israel, & we appointed twelve captains among them. And Allah said: “I am with you: if ye (but) establish regular prayers, practise regular charity, believe in my messengers, honour & assist them, & loan to Allah a beautiful loan, verily I will wipe out from you your evils, & admit you to gardens with rivers flowing beneath; but if any of you, after this, resisteth faith, he hath truly wandered from the path or rectitude.” Continue reading

A Winter Weasel

Stoat Alert - 2014 © Christopher Martin

This Ermine, a short-tailed weasel in its winter coat, was bounding in the snow hunting.  They are so quick that a sharp image can be a challenge.  The bright day and relatively uncluttered scene helped the auto focus and I nabbed a couple of shots before it skipped into deeper brush and out of sight.

Three years ago, we had a weasel that set up for a couple of months in a woodpile in our backyard.  I haven’t seen one since then so it was great fun to have a short encounter again.

Roses are red, so are these!

Prisoners and pelicans and bears — oh, my!

Broadside

By Caitlin Kelly

Many people will never visit the bit of Florida where we just spent a brief five-day vacation. Its white sand beaches have the consistency of fresh brown sugar, but it doesn’t have, blessedly, rows of condo towers or huge hotels.

Tucked between Panama City to the west and Tallahassee to the east, closer to Alabama than the rest of the state, it’s called the Forgotten Coast.

Jose and I had each been to Florida several times, for work and pleasure. I’d visited Key West, Miami, Orlando, Tampa and St. Petersburg. But we’d never been here.

My father and his partner rented a house — like most on St. George Island, set high atop stilts — and invited us; we flew on points, rented a car and drove the 90 minutes west from Tallahassee, sharing our small aircraft with South Florida University’s women’s tennis team.

White Out

Places Unknown

When we arrived at the Casa Grande Mountain Retreat, the mountains were covered in the white clouds and provided a nice change to the steamy sunny beach that we left a few hours ago.

If you wonder how this looks on a sunny day, you can see another photo that I took the following day, called Umbrellas.
