true colors

The sunset last night was fantastic. A faint layer of cloud created an orange glow – sort of like a tropical mandarin drink, with a whole mandarin swimming in a punch bowl. I didn’t take out my camera because I wasn’t in a pretty location for it. I thought – there are so many pretty things in the course of the day that you see, you note and you have to quickly let go of.

There’s a little bit of snow still on the ground today. A handful of winter, sown on empty fields.


It’s settling down now, life is. And that’s a good thing. Fast pace is great for a marathon. Not for the everyday life of a person hunkering down for the next season at the farmette.
