...happy new year...

and now let us welcome the New Year.
full of things that have never been.
~rainer maria rilke

at this moment.
it is sunny and 45 degrees.
happy new year!!!
later today this landscape.
will have a colder feel.
and a dusting of snow.
for now.
i am enjoying the bare ground.
and the shadows.
for more...HEY HARRIET.
this year.
no resolutions.
just aspirations.
take the leap of faith.
believe in yourself.
start today.
just BE.

Happy New Year to you and yours! The winter often confounds, as the ground may or may not be covered in snow. A warm temp in January is outrageous in July, but does feel warm now. The seasonal changes do exist, just enjoy being in the moment now...

Well, here we go again...longjohns, turtlenecks, two wool sweaters, woolly socks and NO ponytail...I'd freeze if I had short hair!!!

Hope this brings good cheer to you and you family, as we trudge on into the new year, but with your beautiful spirit and that wild woman Tilda close by, girl, you are blessed!!! You know I have shed envy, right!

Best of the best to ya lil' sister, this is gonna be a great year...'cause I said so, that's why!!!

Oh! Did you hear the gasp from me as your site downloaded? That dress in the tree...Oh!
And, such an appropriate poem to greet the new year with!
Here's to a brand new year!

I love that little shed. A garden shed? An outside toilet? Whatever it is I like it! I've given up making resolutions, but the aspirations sound good! Happy New year Robin!
