New Faces

The first to lift their faces to the morning sun, they bring joy and peace on a cold late winter morning.

The Light Upon This Earth

The single most beautiful thing, is light. Here are the new pink Katsura buds illuminated by the moon, the Pink Moon, to be exact. Dawn is my happy place, that sliver of time between the healing darkness and the beauty of the light upon this earth.

Bliss

Who feels happiness and bliss like a dog? He makes me want to go lie on the floor in the sunlight myself!

 

Winter/Spring

IMG_4831

We have had trickster weather this month. It’s still winter, and we’ll be buried in snow again quite soon. In the meantime I enjoy this breath of Spring and harbinger of things to come. She delights me!

Bookends

A Year to Clear, Minimalist, Simplfy. I am called to release what no longer serves me, and boy oh boy, am I letting go of stuff. Coffee mugs we never use, clothes I never wear, and books I don’t need to keep. And now the bookcases provide me with a creative outlet!

Celebrate

Snow is lovely. Silent and soft and I so wish we had gotten more of it overnight. It’s still snowing so maybe we will!

Snow

 

img_4665Waking in the morning to a soft white world, I hear the plow blade scrape its way down my country road. Proverbial, not unexpected, and joyously received, the first blizzard of the season captures my heart. May there be many more!

Christmas Light

As the wheel of the year turns, the light will be returning soon. Here in NH we are enticing it early with our own light, one in each window. Welcoming, guiding, a message to the world that peace lies within.

First Snow

img_4484

Upon the Christmas hubbub, the first snow of the season brought calm and peace as I expected. Sitting down to read and let go of the need to accomplish, I gathered myself back to my center….to breathe. The dogs played, the cat slept, and I wrote.

Permanent

Practice makes permanent. What happiness music brings! What a glorious sense of accomplishment, and how powerful one feels when one puts effort into something challenging and beautiful.
