I'm sitting here in my studio awaiting the next cold weather prediction. Of course I had to 'build' a shelter during this time - a "Winter House".
Its been very cold outside with numbers like of 1 and 3 degrees bantered about. Quite chilly for this usually temperate southern climate. But there is hope - the smoke from the chimney at Winter House is billowing out - meaning there's a warm fire within and I daresay my warmest sweater and many cups of hot tea.
I wish for all of you warmth and safety during what has been a very challenging winter.
"But it's mind, this poem of the night,
and I just stood there, listening and holding out
my hands to the soft glitter
falling through the air. I love this world,
but not for its answers."
