January; wild life and wild skies.

January. Our resident moose beds down across the creek and in the evenings wanders back and forth across the meadow as it pleases him. It pleases us too. This morning, he rose and enjoyed a breakfast of willow tips. Life is good here. For us and our wildlife! I must say though that I'm pleased it's not me who has to forage for my breakfast, knee deep in snow.

Happy New Year

William Ellery Channing I will seek elegance rather than luxury, refinement rather than fashion. I will seek to be worthy more than respectable, wealthy and not rich. I will study hard, think quietly, talk gently, and act frankly. I will listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with an open heart. I will bear all things cheerfully, do all things bravely await occasions and hurry never. In a word I will let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common.
