"I linger yet with nature, for the night
Hath been to me a more familiar face
than that of man; and in her starry shade
Of dim and solitary loveliness
I learned the language of another world"
– Byron from 'Manfred,' 1817
Here is a recent photograph by Mary Morgan, a friend of Karen. Her home is on the west bank of the Sacramento River near Red Bluff, California.
