[T]he blush of Spring, the blossom of Summer, the flame of Autumn, the sparkle of Winter, and the violet-softened refulgence of every waking moment yield a never failing succession of delights. ~Horace Fletcher, Menticulture, 1895

Silence is one of the great arts of conversations. – Marcus Tullius Cicero
…shimmering and white as it falls…The earth is covered with it, and it is falling still in silence so deep that you can hear its silence. – Frederick Buechner (Telling the Truth: The Gospel as Tragedy, Comedy and Fairy Tale)

Red, Black and Gray…Cheeky Squirrels! They stole my underwear! They stole my chocolate cupcakes and came begging for more. They try to bury nuts under my windowsill, they spy on my Minecraft designs…and they ate my foam chair cushion.
But I admire their spunk, even on the hottest and coldest days of the year.

Transformation can be good. Transformation means maturity, knowledge, beginnings. Transformation can also mean endings. And it’s important to acknowledge both. So here I am – half-way to an empty nest. Big Guy moved out nearly 6 years ago. This weekend, Little Guy turns 12! I wouldn’t change the journey. Awhile back I reflected on who I am now, and who I’m becoming, and (shockingly) I’m becoming more comfortable in my own skin. My “nest” is becoming empty, but my heart…my heart is full.

Thursday morning’s stroll around the building before work. No strolling today – we had our first snowstorm last night. Time for hot tea and warm socks, red woolen mittens…and sassy green boots! Happy Weekend!

Beauty is ever to the lonely mind a shadow fleeting; she is never plain. She is a visitor who leaves behind the gift of grief, the souvenir of pain. Christopher Morley
I took this photo on the way home from my mother-in-law’s memorial service. It had been a difficult weekend including hours of driving. The sun was setting and we were nearly home. As I stared out the window, the landscape seemed to reflect my own thoughts and feelings – calm and turmoil, light and dark, joy and sorrow.

The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
On Thanksgiving weekend, my Aunt took me a place with a short walkway out into a swamp. We were the only people there, and I felt like I was standing inside a painting by the Group of Seven. Initially it was a place of silence and monotonous browns, until you started to listen to the stillness and see the colour.
If you truly love nature, you will see beauty everywhere. – Van Gogh
