Fall Equinox and A Snippet of George Eliot

Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love — that makes life and nature harmonize. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb theContinue reading “Fall Equinox and A Snippet of George Eliot”

Home Is Where The Herman Hesse Quote Is

“…Trees have long thoughts, long-breathing and restful, just as they have longer lives than ours. They are wiser than we are, as long as we do not listen to them. But when we have learned how to listen to trees, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve anContinue reading “Home Is Where The Herman Hesse Quote Is”

Ladybird Traffic Jam and a kernel of Keats

“The poetry of the earth is never dead.” ~John Keats Each morning I rise early to let the dogs out. They frolic around my acre as I scour the lay of the land for the new, the unusual, the “hey, what is that?” and the “woah, that wasn’t there yesterday.” Each day, no matter howContinue reading “Ladybird Traffic Jam and a kernel of Keats”

The Indiana Tree For Maili

http://themailifiles.blogspot.com/2013/04/one-bold-step_30.html Wow, my friend Maili wrote about my journey on her blog, The Maili Files. She is a wonderful chef, a dedicated mom and a gifted writer.
