Tree Whispering and Being in the Moment
I know all of you summer lovers out there in the world are groaning with more snow photos, but that is all I have outside is snow. As a winter lover I'm embracing the season and enjoying the views. February is a quiet month-a still month. Outside the air barely moves and the trees stop whispering when the wind blows. Each day I hear more birds chirping, they know that spring will soon be here. So I go outside and soak up the winter sun.
Sunshine and snow go beautifully together. Sometimes the snow sparkles and winks at you. Bundled up with scarf, mittens and a hat, I fumble with my camera trying to balance with grace while capturing the winter beauty. All of my swirling thoughts--errands to run, my kids, and what should be for dinner--stop.
I am in the moment. Photography does that, it commands a presence of now.
Frodo is feeling better, thank you for your kind words and wishes. He is hiding right now under the ottoman but he does come out to play and we have been having some frisbee throws each day.
I find that owning a pet is like having a perpetual infant/toddler. With a pet, you observe and guess based on behavior try to decide if the symptoms need medical attention. I remember when my children were able to declare "my tummy hurts" or "I have a scratchy throat" those were golden sentences to my worried ears. I could move forth and treat or if necessary take them to the pediatrician.
I believe today will be a sun shine day and once again, I'll be outside drinking it in.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
