The Keeping Room and The Studio

On this winter day....

"And the world cannot be discovered 
by a journey of miles, 
no matter how long, 
but only by a spiritual journey, 
a journey of one inch, 
very arduous and humbling and joyful, 
by which we arrive at the ground at our own feet, 
and learn to be at home."  

Wendell Berry

A Winter Mind....

peaceful winter whiteness

Happy New Year! 

Snow came to our neighborhood this morning...and it was exciting! In winter's passed, I might have looked at it as work to be done but today I was just glad to see a shimmer out there. We ended autumn with a very white Thanksgiving and started winter with a bit of a whimper on the snow front. I should be careful what I wish for....I can't say I love the shoveling...but I do look forward to dusting off my snowshoes and having a long wander.
