None of us are going to make it out alive but,


You woke up every morning last year ALIVE! That alone made it a good year.

Keep up the good work!

Dear Dog Poop Pick-up Bag Manufacturers,
Scented bags? Really?
"Floral" (and I am being extremely generous) poop isn't any improvement. Trust me.
In fact, I'd rather smell just poop. Again, trust me.

forgotten wisdom

If you light a lamp for someone, it will brighten your own path.
~The Buddha


I think most of the world has forgotten this. We're too worried about the economy, war, celebrities, and "dissing" people who don't agree with us, and getting ourselves to the front of the line.

The Sun returns!

Blessed Solstice! Happy Yule!
May your hearth fire burn brightly in rather soggy heart of Midwinter.

Welcome, winter. Your late dawns and chilled breath make me lazy, but I love you nonetheless. ~Terri Guillemets

Dear Internetland,


today got worse and worse - so much shovelling! so little to show for it; The more we shovelled the harder it fell.

Why does it not feel as cold when it snows? Two days with the same temperature and the one without snow feels bitterly cold.

Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.
~Bill Morgan, Jr.

I'm kinda hoping it's a cold'un - I want to take my camera out to the lake and to the falls. They're gorgeous in ice.  And lets face it - all those Christmas lights people have out do look magical all buried in snow!

The grand plans for going to a concert got the kibosh due to the weather, so tea and a good book are my Plan B.  Completely acceptable!  Especially if it includes a blankie and kitty snuggles.

snowflakes and hot cocoa,

forget your holiday stress


Be humble for you are made of Earth.
Be noble for you are made of stars.
