A Gift

Walking across the parking lot in the dark tonight I looked up to find the  moon.  There were wispy clouds covering much of the sky.  But there in the midst of those veils there appeared a golden lake with a river flowing from it.  I had never seen the sky look quite like it did then.  The moon was just rising and as the wisps spread across it it truly looked like a golden lake with a river shimmering below it.  What a gift!

It is still very cold.  But it is invigorating.  I have had so much more energy since our winter began.
I think my body needed the cold as much as the bare trees, as much as the earth does.

Tomorrow I will take down the tree, and as soon as the ground thaws this weekend we will plant it.
Warmer temps and rain moving in should make for a good planting.  I hope it thrives, it is such a beautiful tree.

Tomorrow is hump day.  Remember be kind.

  1. Lucky you, it will be months before our ground thaws by the look of it. We are still fighting the bitter cold. Hugs, Julia
