Comment of the Week

“In the midwest you get a different kind of bath in every season and time of day. Currently I live near a river and it is winter. Many types of birds have gone south for the winter or animals hibernating. When I walk now it’s more restful. There is almost a hush over everything with the snow. It smells crisp and fresh, exhilarating. Leaves crackle under foot barely covered by the new snow. Towering, gnarled oak trees standing guard here. Enormous branching maples like big hug there. A stand of pretty, white peeling Birch on another slope. Evergreens dotting the woods and permeating the air with minty freshness. The feeling is of strength and timelessness. Bathing in dappled sun through the trees, sounds of river flowering by and birds flitting from bough to bough. Feeling steady and at peace and full of life no matter what happens in the rest of the world.”

-I can see it, Josie.
