simply yourself
and don't compare
or compete,
everyone will respect you."

Before long, we're all going to be
about the heat.
Maybe not.

Snow Walkers

"What a wild Winter sound,-
wild and weird, 
up among the ghostly hills...
I get up in the middle of the night to hear it.
It is refreshing to the ear,
and one delights to know that such wild creatures
are among us.
At this season
Nature makes the most of every throb of life 
that can withstand her severity."
~John Burroughs
The Snow Walkers, 1866

which engages the
whole world
in a conspiracy
 of  Love."

One Lady, Two Ways

We feed the deer.
They love the corn from the
local feed store.
They are hungrier in Winter,
and this year, they are muscular and heavier than previous years.
They stare in our windows and doors and,
 this morning,
a little lady was on our deck!!
She walked up the staircase,
stared in our kitchen door,
looking for her lunch.
I'd love to have her in for tea!
Have a happy weekend,
enjoy the cold,
the snow,
the sunset,
and the wildlife.
I'll be talking to the animals!

Dead of Winter

"Let us love Winter,
for it is the Spring
of genius."
