and if thou shalt strive to live only what is really thy life, that is, the present, then thou wilt be able to pass that portion of life which remains for thee up to the time of thy death, free from perturbations, nobly, and obedient to thy own daemon [to the god that is within thee] Marcus Aurelius
We had another mild, rainy day. The high was 42. The low was 32. It was 39 with wind and drizzle at observation. There was .40" of rain yesterday. All the trails are sure to be creeks today, so be ready to get wet. It looks like we may finally receive some snow tomorrow night!
The sun doesn't rise today. Day arrives as more of a gentle becoming. The sun illuminates shades of grey and they reflect on one another until you are forced to wonder; is it morning? The 7:47 sunrise is not so much a scientific fact as an offhand suggestion. I am forced to rely on my weatherproof sign that morning has arrived - the coffee is no longer too hot to drink.
