Finally a Crust to Walk On

When wet snow freezes at night, providing a solid surface, I look forward to early morning walks. When the conditions are right, it is a great adventure. The trick is to know when the conditions get too warm.

The Ugly Beauty of Spring

The landscape is not very beautiful to look at this time of year. In fact, it appears very drab unless one experiences the fresh smells, the sounds of returning birds and the energy of new growth preparing to burst forth.

The Face of April

The face of April that gazes down on the valley is the snow covered peak of Mount Washington. It will remain white through the spring, creating a background for the changes below. It is a symbol to me of the wisdom inside our souls.

There is Hope

There is hope that spring is finally here. I have found evidence by the tips of daylilies poking up through the ground. My heart sings with the birds. Then again, regardless of the season, each day begins and ends with positive hope.

The Sun at Work

The warm sun of late winter has been at work melting the snow on the surface of the Grace Trail. Before long, evidence of new growth will work its way to the surface of the barren ground. It is a time to look forward to the newness of life.

Not a Good Place to Hide

I noticed a chipmunk poking its head out from on the top of the tire of the car I was about to drive off in. That was not a good place to hide. People try to hide from their gifts and abilities out of fear of failure.

A Long Mud Season

I thought mud season had started some six weeks ago, but winter came back. Now nature seems ready to try again with a warm sun and longer days. Sometimes life seems to have a long mud season, but warmer days are on their way.

Blue Mountains

In late winter, early spring, there is an area where I can see the mountain ranges to the east. They often appear to be blue. When the leaves appear, the mountains will disappear. Now is the time to enjoy them.
