A New Year’s Gift

“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering ‘It will be happier'” – Alfred Lord Tennyson

As the sky brightened on this New Years Day, we were presented with this fleeting vision. I’m choosing to take this as hint of things to come.

Wishing us all a year of good health, love and compassion.  Here’s to 2017!

Late October Drama: A Mix of Sun & Cloud

After saying good-morning to my (very spoiled) chickens, I turn back toward the house and this is what I saw.  A late October drama playing out between the dark cloud in the west and the early morning sun, punctuated by that glorious maple tree.  One of those “stop and take a breath” moments.
