From my journal last week: Early morning - light just touching the edges of dark highlighting the bits of snow remaining under the trees. Rain coming and soon our soft white coverlet will turn to dark mud and disappear. I so loved seeing it all around - softening the edges of fields and rocks and highlighting the leftover bits of gardens and hayfields, lining the trees and adding a marvelous glow to a moon-struck earth.
I sketch the peace of the moment - with olives ..

Journal - I am constantly teased about my inability to just DO nothing - and as much as I try to just be STILL, I seem to need to be productive in order to feel like myself. Another reason why I like winter and snow, especially on super cold days or those rare days we are snowed in, on THOSE days, I can allow myself to sit still, watch the snow fall -- and just BE. But if the sun is shining -- it seems to PULL me into activity. So for me -- bring on the snow! I need a bit more hibernation!!! LOL
