A year indoors is a journey along a paper calendar; a year in outer nature is the accomplishment of a tremendous ritual. Henry Beston
It's yet another blustery day up top. The high yesterday reached 47 degrees. The low was 43 degrees. It was 45 degrees and raining lightly at 7am observation. The mountain received 1.62" of rain, most of it coming overnight. The weather is supposed to stay the same for most of the day, with some cold temperatures coming this evening. Hopefully, this will turn this cold rain into snow!
The gentle outline of trees out my loft window swayed restlessly as darkness descended last evening, eternal unquietness. They had an entrancing. hypnotic quality to them. I had my cabin sanctuary in the midst of primordial fury. The trees are reslilient, enduring in ways we are not.
