Found this rose in the neighborhood on a last-day-of-2011 walk.

Christmas raspberry

We moved our canes a year and a half ago, and they’re still confused. I picked this berry this morning on the way back from the compost bin.

The Literary Cart. As a young man Martin sold sodas and water in the streets of Cartagena. He was a voracious reader though and began to carry books as well for exchange and to encourage other readers. Now he has a full time mobile bookstore with sponsorships.

One of the great stories about Martin is that he does readings for young children from an elaborately bound book – filled with blank pages. He makes the stories up as he goes along.
