We all have our favorite things.  Here are a few of mine and Elijah’s.  (He’s the 9th century BC prophet I’ve written about in my novel series).

My favorites:

Favorite Tree:  any tree.  I never met a tree I didn’t like. (Well maybe the box elder)

Favorite Mentor:  I have two, both dead dead:  Madeleine L’Engle and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Favorite River:  I don’t know.  It might be the Scioto that transects our state or the Ohio that flows into another contender: the Mississippi.

Favorite Desert:  Sonoran.  The only desert I haveSonoran_Desert_Scottsdale_AZ_50349 visited is the Sonoran Desert in Arizona.

Favorite Mountains:  the tree-covered Appalacians and their foothills.

Here are Elijah’s favorites.  Even though he was well-travelled for his time, I have travelled farther and seen more without ever leaving the United States.
