More snow...

Well, more quiet time in the cabin, listening to soft freezing rain and watching snowflakes drift down from above. I've managed to keep the cabin pretty warm and the cats are sleeping a lot, up in the warm loft. Wish I could tell you I've been painting or doing something creative, but really have just been enjoying the silence, reading a bit, watching the birds. Here are a few snapshots from just before dusk. I took some video of Sundew in the snow, but haven't put it into the computer yet. Maybe tomorrow.

It's been a strange week, what with birds falling from the sky in so many places and dead fishes washing ashore on various continents and other events I won't name. We really must become clear about how we and the earth are like mirrors for each other. If we have a high cancer rate, it is reflected in our being a cancer upon the earth. Something tells me that if we start treating the earth as our bodies - and our bodies as the earth - we can somehow turn it all around. Can we do this? Can we care for ourselves (and each other) fully? Can we care for our planet fully? None of this is easy. It's so much easier to go the easy route. But that's actually a lie. It's so much easier to do what's needed. But there's only one way to find out the truth in that statement. And to find this way, we must find the truth of what's really needed and act upon it.

The top one shows how fragile things can be. Wonderfully poignant! I sometimes feel like this image. I know I can sometimes BE this fragile.
