sunday thinking

 the snow continues…
it snowed yesterday
 and today it's quite cold
 and it's beautiful
 my usual walk was shortened to a walk around my house
 so much beauty
 this old house…

 and the young porcupine
 under the cedar
 chipmunk
 subsnow passages
 spring is trying
 fire and ice
 so i came back in
to try to warm up.
over at judy's blog
i heard her words about mothering
i remembered my mom
and cried.

Yes, Judy's post was lovely, and a tearjerker! Beautiful light around your house, mauve and blue snow shadows.

such delicious pics --- the light is incredible --- and what's with the porcupine? do they usually come out and about in the snow? (its all so different and wonderful to these no snow eyes)

Beautiful and tender..... the delicate icicles, the spring shoots, a young porcupine and aching memories. I miss my mom too..... so much.

...wish i could visit you (bringing tea and snacks) to tell you how timely your post was w/ the mothering theme...struck my heart so deeply. xo

Beautiful light, beautiful post. We never stop missing our mamas, I believe.
These past days have been especially hard as we have been mourning the death of my friend's 12 year old son.
When the loss is a child, we need our mamas even more I think. When we are living through, trying to keep ourselves together as we try to 'mother' our friends...I want to lay my head on my mama's lap and have her play with my hair while I weep.
Thank you for adding to Judy's post with your most touching post as well.
I too cry for the missing.

Velma Bolyard said...

nancy, i think you're right. and so sad about losing a child. so much sadness.

the light you have caught in your photos is so full of the imminence of spring

Barry said...

Hi9 V - cold and snow - and yet it seems that the grip of winter is slipping and new bits and pieces are appearing - soon you will be striding and gathering. Go well. B

Velma Bolyard said...

mc, i'll trade imminence for reality, thank you!
barry, i so hope so
