Embarrassment Salve

A  L  O  H  A !
Thee, Tree
"So will I build my 
altar in the fields,
And the blue sky my 
fretted dome shall be,
And the sweet fragrance
that the wild flower yields
Shall be the incense 
I will yield to thee."
             Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Penry Park, Petaluma 
"Penry Park was the first park 
established in the town of Petaluma, CA 
and appears to meet 
National Register Criteria. 
It is significant in the categories of 
social history, landscape architecture, 
recreation, and in community planning 
and development. It is associated with the Parks Movement, with the Women's Improvement Clubs movements, and with the Temperance Movement. 
It is also associated with early settlers and important figures in Petaluma, Building/structure dates: 1896" 

Memories of Waikiki
"Embarrassment lasts 
a moment, regrets 
last a lifetime."

It's a pain when those embarrassing moments pop up in your head from time to time.

I could worship in Coleridge's church. Indeed I do worship in it.

I don't think I'll ever get used to seeing palm trees in Northern California. And, yet, lately, I think about planting one in the front yard.

Embarrassments sometimes pop back to mind and become regrets.

It happens more and more that i experience an embarrassing moment, but now I can say that this is due to old age.
