  • Frosty Feeling, Antidote: Hygge

    Welcome January. I guess. The world is frosty, and I’m working to warm my heart to the hard work ahead. Outside the windows it’s fairly bleak and monochrome. But red, green and blue keep popping up saying, “Hey look at me!!” Safe marching in Washington, Sisters. In Boston. In Chicago. Philadelphia, and beyond. I’ll be in…

    Thinking of India During a Snowstorm

      The snow is piling up, just as they said. For once the hype seems true. My main happiness is watching it obscure all the broken branches under the trees, and the last piles of garden debris I raked up but never hauled to the compost pile. And then there is the copious amount of…

    Invincible Summer

    It is always good to search within. I love the sentiment, the design, and the photography. I found this image found via Pinterest and The Costume Room.
