A Clam, An Oyster & The Night Sky





We are expecting a fair amount of snow in the morning. So yesterday I did my grocery shopping, book and magazine shopping and stocked up on my sangria and mead wine. I always hope for a state of emergency with a travel restriction as that is the only time my night time job closes. Otherwise you better show up-rain, snow, sleet, hurricane or tornado. I enjoyed the freedom of having time to prepare and also living alone I only have to worry about myself.

Today I went and checked on two properties I care for and took the pictures above. I wanted to make sure the properties were fine before the snow and ice hit. It was fifty five degrees today and gray. I walked the property by the river and enjoyed the Canada geese and hundreds of bufflehead ducks on the river. I loved hearing them call along with the cows across the river. I got a kick out of finding the clam and oyster on the bank of the river. Not sure if high tide put them there or birds but I enjoyed seeing them. I stood on the riverbank for a while watching the birds on the river and just feeling the winds blow. It is hard to believe we are getting a major storm in a few hours.

Tonight while hunkering down in my cozy apartment I decided I needed to stop living in a semi limbo. I had not hung up some pictures as I was not sure if I would have to take them down to move. But tonight I hung three pictures and decided that I need to remember to live mindfully and not so far in the future. The new owners may want me to stay on.

I have found myself very connected lately to nature and in tune with what is happening around me. I loved working for a coworker this past week and being able to work outside at night. I enjoyed beautiful sunsets, zodiacal light, a rainbow, the space station and a meteor. Standing outside at night with the stars, planets, dark matter and all the universe I feel centered and connected, at peace.

So with the oncoming snow and cold I wish for all of you-happiness, peace and warmth. And in closing one final shot that spring is not too far away.


I myself will know spring is here with the spring peepers!
Happy March!

    I heard the spring peepers the day before the ice storm hit. Hope they found insulated cover…..

Rising Over the Smoke

Cleanse ye your eyes, so that ye behold no man 
as different from yourselves.... 
See ye no strangers; rather see all men as friends, 
for love and unity come hard 
 when ye fix your gaze on otherness. ~Baha'i
