Among The Top 15 In The Houston Area   Leave a comment

The Houston Chronicle recognized outstanding nurses during a luncheon on May 2, 2023. Each year, the Houston Chronicle
honors the top nurses across Greater Houston during their Salute to Nurses event. In 2023, 200 recipients were selected through a public nomination — included are seven UT Physicians employees. Kenne was recognized as one of the Top 15 this year.

Lay down these words
Before your mind like rocks.
             placed solid, by hands
In choice of place, set
Before the body of the mind
             in space and time:
Solidity of bark, leaf, or wall
             riprap of things:
Cobble of milky way,
             straying planets,
These poems, people,
             lost ponies with
Dragging saddles—
             and rocky sure-foot trails.
The worlds like an endless
Game of Go.
             ants and pebbles
In the thin loam, each rock a word
             a creek-washed stone
Granite: ingrained
             with torment of fire and weight
Crystal and sediment linked hot
             all change, in thoughts,
As well as things.
— Gary Snyder

Kenne David Turner Grilling On His Birthday, January 1st — Image by kenne

“This sandgrain day in the bent bay’s grave
      He celebrates and spurns
   His driftwood forty-eighth wind turned age;
      Herons spire and spear.”

Caught In The Rain   1 comment

I tried working in an hour walking the East End Park trails before a forecasted storm.

The sky was partly cloudy as I neared the lake.

An image from close to the ground looking toward the lake.

Cloud reflections on the water.

This image of the sky and clouds reflecting off the water is deceptive because dark clouds were already beginning to build up behind me.

By the time I reach the park parking lot I was soaked. (December 29, 20022) — Images by kenne

Houston has a lot of wall art, especially in the near-downtown area. David, Janie, and Katelyn took me where some of the art is located yesterday.
