It’s currently 38 degrees, wet, and cloudy. Yesterday’s high was 45 degrees, with an overnight low of 38. We received another inch of rain yesterday.
The trails are ice free but expect that to change if the temperature drops.
I trudged through the dank dripping darkness. Clouds continued to permeate through the trees. I moved slowly, quietly toward my destination. I thought with wonder at how different the landscape was just a week ago. I couldn’t help but to think of a particular past sunrise. The light, the snow, and the frosted trees were mesmerizing. The image was imprinted on my memory. As quickly as it had arrived, I let the image go. I brought my attention back to the moment, back to the now…
…the dripping evergreens glowed in the morning haze.
P.S. - Happy Winter Solstice.
