Small beginnings...

I started these this week in Colorado while the boys were skiing. They're not finished, but I think I like where they're going...

My Christmas Present...

Seeing a bald eagle is always special to me, especially since I rarely see them in GA. After posting these pictures, I looked out and saw a great big fox bounding down toward the river, then creeping through the brush along the shores. Sorry, I didn't get a photo this time...

Forestwatch Hike

Yesterday a hearty group of folks turned out for my GA Forestwatch hike down to Raven Rock on the Chattooga. As buddy Joe likes to say, "it was a good hike. no one died"
Really, though, it was a great hike and a really nice group to be with.

this week...

...and a poem
by William Stafford shared with me by a friend recently:

The Way It Is

There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.

The last week or so...

These images really lose color when they are imported to the blog - there is a nice ruddy red that just turns to mud here, but...

the duration

the rescue

the difference

red road (far away, deep inside)

calm before
