    Spring's Right Around The Corner...

    This non-winter has a lot of potential to get a winter lover like me down. Here we are in mid-February and yet to have our first real snow that sticks around the way it does in a 'normal' winter. With each day the sun is climbing higher in the sky, bringing us closer to the...

    Unspoiled nature makes me feel small

    and humble, and in a world of extreme multi-tasking, giving up control in a big, dense forest can be so, so perfect sometimes.

    My true nourishment lies not in material

    possessions. My whole being feeds off of Mother Nature. The more I receive, experience, share with Nature, the more alive and balanced I become.

    It's just amazing how nature is.

    I was outside today reading my book underneath this big tree in our yard and just realized last week there was hardly any leaves and now it's full of green leaves. It's just amazing to watch the seasons change even if you only have two seasons. There's a peace in watching it...

    The Power And Awe Of Nature

    Just before the July 4 th holiday in 2012 I was in Maryland. It was a Friday night, just past 11 pm. The house lights dimmed and went out. Turns out a microburst came through with severe winds and huge force. The meteorologists called it a Derecho, a straight line, high wind...

    Bear...BIG BEAR!! Last night a big black bear

    came visiting. He stayed for the longest time. We watched from the porch as he drunk all the bird seed out of the feeder. Then he just laid down and relaxed...with us watching and talking to him. He was about 40ft from us. He was beautiful, big and shiny black. I think he was...

    THE INTIMACY OF A ROSE

    Nature is something I'm close to.

    When I'm in nature I can feel the living things around me. There is so much life tucked back in a small canyon or hiking trail. When I'm most alone I'll find myself hiding out in nature where I can find peace and be alone.

    Man can only aspire to

    that which Nature delivers. This planet was designed to be our home, but we have been lousy tenants. It's time for a change in how we treat Nature, because although through artifice we try to differ from it, we can never be anything other than part of it.

    The Acorn This fall I found the beginning of a

    tree. Just barely peeping out the shell. An unearth dirty lonely acorn. I brought it to the house. Then gathered dirt, filled a cup and reburied it. Today it has four leaves. Hmmnn what a blessing to see.

    A few sundays ago, my room mate, dog and I went to the river to explore. Beautiful sunny day, river calm, I surely needed the medicine of Mother Nature. I had been within my cell/self for days now. Heavy with thoughts, loads of prayers. I have always found my balance with I hung...

     We were wondering what kept cleaning out

    the bird feeders over night. Last night I went out of a smoke and there they were. Three cute little flying squirrels. How awesome and graceful they are. I love my home and I am totally in awe of Nature.

    I love nature as a whole.

    I have always liked the changing seasons and the identities of each respectively. Autumn is my favorite one. I love walking the local woods and its the colors you get under the canopy. Its like no other season for that, it a kaleidoscope of hues and tones. I love the smells...

    Petals In The Air

    When I was a kid,I used to see wild flowers growing in our lawn. I would enjoy myself picking the yellow ones in the afternoon after my playmates have gone home. One by one I would remove the petals and blow them in the air. The image of petals floating is what fascinated me the...

    Magnificent Snowflakes

    I'm amazed at the number of people who live here in northern New England and despise winter. It's a real head-scratcher when some years winter can be nearly 6 months long. These folks spend half the year -and half their lives- in a funk because it's more often than not cold or...
