Even Spring

Even Spring

Even Spring, with its energetic greening and blooming, offers quiet, meditative moments.

Frozen Grace

Frozen Joy

These winter city dwellers come to the frozen river to skate, to play. They push and glide, push and glide in happy rhythm across the ice. Warming huts along the skating trail provide respite from the cold, though this day is mild enough, the scent of spring in the air.

But it is not the promise of spring that lifts spirits; it is the elegant freedom of floating upon the solid surface, the solidness precious for soon thaws will render this playground precarious, unreliable, unsafe. So the frozen river offers a time of  grace, a time of trust, to unbound the imagination and unbreak the heart.

Christmas is the time of light. Happy Holiday to all!

November Begins

Seasonal Tones

November 1, 2015 (1)

The 11th month of our year, November originates from the Latin novem (nine) as it marked the ninth month of the Roman calendar.

In the northern hemisphere, it heralds the final days of autumn, the loss of light and warmth, and the transition to winter’s monochrome and minimalism.

This next-to-last month is mature, pensive, revealing sweet melancholy as a natural, necessary season of life. Greetings to November!


Autumn PaletteThis weekend Canada celebrates Thanksgiving. I wish everyone in Canada a Happy Holiday. And to all others elsewhere may you, too, receive the  bounty and blessings of the season.
