36/365: throw me a bone (or something)
This dried flower bunch reminded me of an animal poking its nose through the fence, looking for a handout. I feel a little like that as winter drags on…pretty sunlight today, but the drab is getting the best of me. Wishing it would snow.
37/365: the love that surrounds us
All together now: love, love, love.
It’s all we need. It will keep us together. And we’ve got to let it rule.
38/365: this and that (gingko leaf & pinecone)
There are some natural forms that ape each other or look like distant cousins. Not these two. They are utterly, unmistakably themselves.
39/365: the long and short of it
The days are getting longer. The sun, warmer. Part of what I love about living in a four-season climate is the anticipation and the agony. There is always something changing and something to look forward to. The boredom with the long winter only makes the glory of spring that much sweeter. And in the heat of summer, I sometimes dream of snow.
40/365: micro/macro cosmos
This is, without a doubt, my favorite image of the week. It speaks of timeless questions and boundless imagination. The vast and invisible. Time. Space. Energy. Metamorphosis.
I hate to be a downer but this heat wave is alarming.
Sure, it feels good to wear a t-shirt in February in Minnesota. But. on the other hand, what does it mean? Anomaly or undeniable evidence (as if we need more)?
Furthermore, I like winter…
42/365: don’t be fooled
In the short term, I’m concerned for the flora. Too many warm days in a stretch send the wrong signals. I’d hate to see the plants wake up too soon, only to freeze in the inevitable March snow.
It’s nice to feel warm again, but I’ll happily wait until spring, for spring.
