…We want the spring to come and the winter to pass. We want
whoever to call or not call, a letter, a kiss — we want more and more and then more of it.
But there are moments, walking, when I catch a glimpse of myself in the window glass,
say, the window of the corner video store, and I’m gripped by a cherishing so deep
for my own blowing hair, chapped face, and unbuttoned coat that I’m speechless:
I am living…

Snow storm Juno roared in and left us with 34 inches of light fluffy snow
nice gift, huh?
But seriously, it is the season and I actually think snowless winters are rather boring
By then end of February, I’ll be wishing it all away
but right now, I’m loving the beautiful blanketed landscape and the wonderful quietness it brings.
“It’s being here now that’s important. There’s no past and there’s no future. Time is a very misleading thing. All there is ever, is the now. We can gain experience from the past, but we can’t relive it; and we can hope for the future, but we don’t know if there is one.”
~ George Harrison
Did you know that January 21st was Squirrel Appreciation Day?
A big thank you to The National Wildlife Federation for including my photo in their recent article.
