Happy New Year

I must say, one of my resolutions is to spend more time here. When I was writing regularly, I developed a wonderful community of thoughtful people to engage with and learn from. It took bravery to write each day, to keep up with the greater nature community and to share my ideas.

Months have passed since I came here and delved into my thoughts, ideas and inspiration. I want this again this year. Here’s to more time with all of you.

My son and I had a wonderful holiday break. We head back to school tomorrow, clothed for time in nature, ready to brace for cold weather, wind, and yes please, dear Father Winter, send us some snow.

Jeremiah had a chance to talk with Santa just before Christmas. My boy’s growing up. In case you miss his sweet face, here he is with the man from the north pole.

Happy New Year to all and to all a good night…..
