Thelma, Louise, Mr. Rabbit and a Holiday Wish
I am glad you can not see inside the room. Papers are stacked on tabletops, paintings lay against a wall, a lamp sits to the side while construction dust continues to settle in the far corners of the room...no matter, for Bach has me right where I need to be...in a peaceful grace.
There is so much to say since I last wrote (in ummmmm September). It's been a whirlwind from Hong Kong back to Tahilla Farm and the last stages of our construction project. On my return to Tahilla Farm I had a few surprise visitors. I call them Thelma, Louise and Mr. Rabbit.
Louise sauntered in out of the woods one snowy afternoon to see what was happening with the carriage house, I am not certain who was more surprised, her or me. You can spot her standing at the far corner of the building.
She checked me out,
I checked her out
and then she was went on her way.
The next day, as I was leaving my driveway and happened upon another surprise.
Two lost sheep in a matter of days was odd.
Two lost sheep at all was even more curious and worrying.
Feeling the two were "wild and free"
the only natural course
was to call them "Thelma and Louise".
I called the police to say that I thought someone
had lost their sheep (while trying not to burst out laughing)
and if they had, they should start on our street.
There were a number of theories on where they came
from but I never did solve the mystery.
And then came Mr. Rabbit.
He appeared on December 1st and has been around for a while.
It is my first sighting of a rabbit at Tahilla Farm. While sweet now,
he may not be so sweet come spring when the bulbs start to bloom.
Until then...it's Mr. Rabbit and me.
It's time for me to make my way back to the kitchen, before I do,
I want to wish one and all a very Happy Holiday!
Thank you for "hanging out" with me this past year on the blog,
at Collage of Life... you have been a genuine inspiration.
I look forward to picking up where we left off this summer
with the "retreat" idea, it's still ticking along!
For you...a little Bach with Yo-Yo Ma.
