As the snow from this week's winter storm falls outside, I'm finally getting a chance to post photos from my stay in Pittsburgh on another frigid February weekend. Here's the view from Beth and Jesse's backporch -- notice the hawk in the tree below.
With temperatures close to zero, it seemed a good day for a visit to Phipps Conservatory, where we enjoyed cacti, bonsai, orchids, and lots of green (more posts coming), and for a stop at a coffee shop, where we enjoyed the artistry of the foam.
"Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it."
Mary Oliver in "Sometimes"
I've taken on a prayer practice of looking for the moments of light in each day, whether actual or metaphorical, and then writing or posting photos of what I find.
