MARCH CABIN REFLECTIONS

 

We had a late winter snowstorm this past week and I was home to enjoy it. Early February was so nice that we had a few weeks of solar hot water. Remember the Lake at Dawn photo 3 posts back? Here’s the flip side. Our neck of the woods is getting a slow start to spring . . .

Cheers – Bruce

    • 🙂 Ah, may you feel better soon – after the flood, and without the sniffles. I’ve been meaning to go over to your blog about your recent jury duty… Think I noticed it yesterday, so I”ll head over there now. Peace, my friend.

  1. You make snow look so beautiful. I think it is ending now and warm weather this week. Grateful for the cold (overcast) and for balmy days. Teaches us balance, the bitter with the sweet. Life in its bitterness at the core is sweetness. To find fullness one must become empty. Sister who spent time in my hermitage while I was away died on Thursday. Deep sadness and emptiness, deep joy and fullness.

    • Charles – Yes, the weather is milder and maybe we will see some daffodils soon. Thank you for this deep reflection on bitter and sweet and finding fullness through emptying of one-self. Your thoughts are filled with solace, and they pour out. My condolences on the death of your beloved sister.

      In earthly kinship, Bruce

  2. Bruce, these photos perfectly show the glorious beauty of winter and one of the reasons I like living where there are four seasons. That being said, I’m ready for spring any time it arrives and for my visit to California soon. 🙂 Enjoying it all!
