It’s all happening today, things that we hear about and see, things to try and wrap our heads around. If you watch the news we have a horrendous hate crime in South Carolina and the U.S. Open Golf Tournament here in western Washington State. If you read this blog we have Clara in Columbia, a Camino buddy of Juan’s who is growing corn in Iowa being lavishly prayed for by my Camino buddy Mary Margaret, tea
ching in Shanghai. Right here at Phil’s Camino we had a light rain over night.
It’s the old “the good, the bad and the ugly” looks like. The Devil is alive and well first off showing us his handiwork. How does a young man get so far off track? For sure let us pray for peace in that neighborhood.
To the US Open, Chambers Bay Golf Course is just maybe 15 miles south of the ranch. It is along the waters of Puget Sound which Vashon Island is in. Looking at the TV coverage you see Anderson, McNeil and Fox Islands off shore of the course. The site was a gravel pit ten years ago and is a beautiful example of repurposing. It is very rugged looking and very rugged on some players who can’t seem to get the hang of it. Tiger Woods in currently 11 over par. It seems it takes some unconventional thinking to adapt to the unconventional terrain and grasses. Some of the younger players seem to be doing well.
And the whole Midwest America, Columbia, Shanghai thing is a thing of beauty. As local Caminohead Catherine said lately, “the heart knows no distance”. We are buoyed up by this showing of care in an often brutal world. Let’s keep it up gang!
Yes, and the rain here was refreshing but not enough to go deep. Ah, worrying about my corn is also a thing of beauty. And the sunflowers are starting to produce their flowers. Yup, it’s all happening! Thanks for Shanghaing my heart, Felipe.
