  5. Yesterday, I heard and watched a as birds played and sang on the branches of a tree outside my house. I think they were singing to new beginnings and celebrating the tree coming back to life.

  6. Lovely... When I first saw the photo, I immediately thought of paths and journeys, how there are the bold, broad highways and the medium side roads and the tiny little trails, not to mention the 'buds' that we think are 'dead ends' only to become a source for tremendous growth and awakening... You are truly a master with these images, Laura...I love where you/they lead me...

  11. I love the thought of liquid light. There's a certain life to it that isn't always there. We had lots of sleet and freezing rain earlier in the week, and there are moments still when the light touches the snow just so, or illuminates an icicle hanging from the house, and the light turns pure liquid. There's no other word for it.

  12. I've been watching the buds on our maple tree outside my kitchen door, looking forward to seeing their awakening process. It felt great late this afternoon when I noticed the longer light, lifts the spirits!
