What might have coiled inside it?
Crocuses tight on their clock-springs,
a bird who’d sing himself into an angel
in the highest reaches of the garden,
the morning’s flaming arrow?
Any small thing can save you.

Architecture: A City That's Built at the Bottom of a Lake: "something you don't see every day: a town built in the middle of a lake. Not on an island, but actually below water level. It's the ancient city of Seuthopolis, in Bulgaria, which was discovered in 1948."

Anything, of course, is appreciated whether it is $5 or $100 (or anything in between). Below is the e-mail I received from Carla Urbigkeit of the Oregon State Police:
Thank you for contacting me about Shop With A Cop!! It is SO hard to raise money when everyone is so strapped!!
I have asked people who want to donate to make the check payable to 'OSP Volunteers' and they can mail the check either to our OSP office here in Newport (PO Box 947) or the OSP Volunteer address (PO Box 974) both in Newport OR 97365. I know, the two PO Boxes are very similar in number!!
I sure appreciate your help! If you have any questions you can certainly call me at 270-4817.
