We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

A Winter's Morn

Ahh cold weather and real winter darkness, I've missed it so much. I'm not being sarcastic I really love the weather right now, it's snowing outside the window and it looks cold cold cold. In Colorado snow was always followed by insanely bright sun and no real feeling of winter (there were a few winters where I didn't wear gloves except when I was playing in the snow). Also the light here really does change over the year a lot more, Colorado is much further south than one would think. I'm happy with the nestling down under the covers and drinking hot coco feeling I'm having today.

Part of the day will be spent at the shop, not that many people are going out today. So it'll be me and Alder playing and making things. And a trip to the post office to mail out somethings.

I'm jealous we don't do snow over here anymore. Last few years the weather seems to have changed so we have had really mild winters mostly dry. We're lucky if we get two snowfalls in a winter now.

that was always the unsettling feeling i had in colorado. the sun and snow just seemed unreal. like living in a movie. give me bleak and dreary winters to hibernate under the covers! (oh i miss it up north! all i get here is rain and mud and days in the 70's)
