To be a squirrel, you need to face a few challenges…

it’s a l-o-o-ong



There are little gems of beauty when your world is focused on the tiny side of things…

like this little bit of moss growing in  crack in the driveway…

Sometimes I imagine myself as small as a chipmunk, as nimble as that squirrel.

Yet, I am rewarded too for being just myself…by little surprises, like

the frost on an azalea bush the other morning. Cold, shocking after the warmth of November…but the glittering beauty drew me outside nonetheless.

There was this….

a tired old maple leaf, “glued” to the deck railing, itself a quiet whisper of beauty, every grain-line illuminated with frost crystals,

and finally, this…

the last whisper from the Japanese Maple.
