We've been spending as much time in nature as possible these past days, while the weather has been fine. We had a light freeze the other night, but thankfully we'll be warming back up into the 70s for a while, before Madame Winter comes on the scene.

As much as we love the cozy layers of winter with its daily hot soups and baked goods, fresh from the oven, we always miss the freedom of open windows, line-dried laundry, and feet who love the feel of the earth.
May we learn wisdom from the trees and animals around us, and gracefully embrace the changes that are inevitable as the daylight ebbs and darkness once again stakes its claim upon the earth.
approaching, forever vanishing; but in her vanishings there
seems to be ever the waving of a hand, in all her partings a
promise of meetings farther along the road."
