01.27.13 You never know how a Winter day will close down. After the freezing rain, the cold rain, the dreary day, here comes the sun, low in the sky, ready to set in golden light over the mountains across the lake as I was preparing the table for dinner. And then, just before bed and the blowing out of candles, I went outside to see if there was anything. Maybe the wind in the trees or the sound of the waves, and in magic moments, a doe’s eyes in the moonlight. And there, above the hill to our east, was the Wolf Moon, circled by thin clouds, rising to take its regal place in the January sky.
“The most significant gifts are the ones most easily overlooked. Small everyday blessings: woods, health, music, laughter, memories, books, family, friends, second chances, warm fireplaces, and all the footprints scattered throughout our days.” –Sue Monk Kidd
