Snow Melt

It’s been a sleepy time in Tessland, lots of hiding between teaching gigs (that are oh so very life-affirming and it makes me feel so blessed to watch things grow and change over the course of  a semester). Down time is necessary but hard.  In the meantime, it is good to be reminded of the infinite possibilities that exist out there for oneself, there for the taking.  Not just the hopeful stuff. . .but all the facets, the lights and the darks and shadows.

Gustave Caillebotte

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
Rachel Carson, Silent Spring
