My first post in my first blog ~

I sit near a window with a cup of hot Tulsi tea,
glancing up from time to time,
watching snow flakes the size of small feathers float through the sky.
My neighbor once told me "
this is the romantic style of snow".
It most certainly is dreamy!

A thick blanket of snow,
surrounds my wee log cabin.
I am filled with wonder,

watching a rare breeze stir to life,
Dumping piles of heavy snow
crashing to earth
from tall trees.
Wind parts clouds,
golden sunlight pours through
highlighting the day's glory,
coloring my world with shadows of blue and gray.

Sensing that writing a blog is an intimate sharing that is rich and full of creative possibilities, I feel excited and shy to expose myself in this way.
I welcome you to my blog with open arms and tender heart.

The other day I had the honor of taking this huge bird's portrait as it lifted into flight!

    A friend of your mom's,

  7. Hi Fawn,
    So nice of you to drop by! I look forward to lady and fairy slippers this spring, which is right around the corner. For now I wait patiently for the perfect weather for ice crystals and snowflakes. As for being in the right place a the right time... I like the wilderness, so I spend time there and always with my camera. Take care,

  8. Nice bald eagle take off shot. It was a great symbol for your springing your spirit forth into the blogging world.

    "Romantic kind of snow" I can just see it.
