At a time when there is much to worry over, heavy tangled emotions weighing on our hearts, it was a joy to have a snowy weekend with good food, nowhere we had to be, and plenty of time to play together.

She got a camera for Christmas. Made it her New Year's Resolution to remember to take it whenever we go anywhere.
Today she asked me if she can take a writing class for kids through the local library, just as I'm beginning a graduate poetry workshop as a treat for myself.
I tell myself that it's okay for her to have her own interests, to discover passions that aren't like my own. And it's true.
Still, it gives me a little thrill that she wants to be like me.

I have this large window in my office at work. With a view to giant oak trees and rhododenron. And squirrels and the neighborhood groundhog, who lives in the hedge by the path.
Sometimes it's just what I need to sit and look.
I also love that my window is decorated with art from a dear friend.
