This love, and the ensuing emptiness of its ending, changed her. Of such events we are always changed — not necessarily badly, but changed. Who doesn’t know this doesn’t know much. Mary Oliver
It's another beautiful, clear morning up top. The high yesterday reached 43 sunny degrees. The overnight low as 24 degrees. It was 24 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation yesterday. There is still some patchy snow remaining up top. I'm sure that there is still some tricky ice on sections of trail with all of the freeze thaw conditions we've had lately. Be careful and have fun out there!
Yesterday was a day to enjoy some rest and relaxation in the sun. I carried a rocking chair out to the porch and let the Vitamin D work its' mood enhancing wonders. The wind was calm as could be and hiker traffic was low. It felt like a quiet day at the beach. I finished my book and did some collaging. These perfect little moments make a life.
