February Light

_DSC000102.07.13  Even while lying on the sofa, miserable day four of a bad cold, I rallied to grab my camera and capture the stripes of sunshine and blue vista out the windows to the lake.  We really are into February now.  Feeling better this morning, I went for a walk out to the head of the lake, loving the cold air on my sinuses.  The Canadian geese were everywhere, Spring beginning to stir on their wings.  And I heard the first sweet trilling of a red-wing blackbird over in the cat-tails.  The males have returned!  Soon they will be joined by the females, the robins, the cacophony of Spring sounds.  I actually had tears in my eyes at the miracle of it all–both Winter and my cold are fading away.
