The Books are Here!

TO ALL FANS AND AND VIRTUAL MEMBERS OF THE CHURCH O’ THE PINES: The books are here! Thanks so much for your patience—they will start going out today.

Denominations of The Island

WE ARE AWAY FROM THE CHURCH O’ THE PINES for a few days as we visit the Denominations Of The Island. Loon is here, singing the praises of northern lakes.

The Log

IN THE WOOD-SPLITTING AREA on Fawn Island rests an old log that was here when we arrived—hired by the local loons and white-throated sparrows as Caretakers—a quarter-century ago.

No One But You

THROUGH THE MAGIC OF THE DIGITAL WORLD, I have a new friend in Northern Ontario.

Kathy’s Garden

AT THE OLD PINE POINT CABIN, Kathy’s gardens are thriving. The bleeding hearts have escaped captivity, have leaped over the stone wall, and are dashing into the forest, with bumblebees in hot pursuit.

Spring Cleaning at the Church O’ The Pines

THIS IS A WONDERFUL TIME at the Church O’ The Pines. The old carriage-house garage—home to a motorcycle, lawnmower, snowblower, canoe paddles, and many a picture and memento—has had its Spring Cleaning.

Book Update

DEAR CHURCH O’ THE PINES READERS: Thank you for your patience in awaiting the book! Preparation and printing are in the home stretch, and shipments should be going out in a couple of weeks if all goes well.

Rainy Day and Night

IT RAINED ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT AT THE CHURCH O’ THE PINES and is still dripping this morning. But the woods have been dry and the drips are doing a lot of good.

Happy Mother’s Day

ON THIS MOTHER’S DAY AT THE CHURCH O’ THE PINES it is cloudy and cold. But on the other hand, it is gray and gloomy.
