Yesterday's mild weather beckoned me outside so I grabbed my camera, a brand new sketchbook, and Charlie and took a short walk around the yard.
It seemed that wherever I looked I saw something interesting; a strip of birch bark stuck on a twig, gem-like berries on a snowy stump, a grove of sporophytes, wrinkled mushrooms...
even a rainbow of fuzz, stuck on my clothesline.
I feel ready. I don't know how else to explain it. I feel ready to see things, do things, change things. I'm not sure if that's a symptom of a new calendar year or something deeper, but I'm embracing it.
How about you? Do you feel change stirring? What do you think this year holds for you? Do you have your baskets ready?
