I went out to the DeFries Calendar Garden on one of the warmer-than-usual days last week, wondering what was happening out there these days. At first glance, not much. It was a typical bleached out, frozen February landscape, with a few evergreens to remind us of color. But don't despair. Spring is coming -- my snowdrops are blooming!
"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.
