The beauty of a New England winter...

"All that is sweet, delightful, and amiable in this world, in the serenity of the air,

the fineness of the seasons, the joy of light,

the melody of sounds, the beauty of colors, the fragrance of smells,

the splendor of precious stones, is nothing else

but Heaven breaking through the veil of this world."

William Law, 18the century English cleric

2011 is what your life now is...

“What I want to say is

that the past is the past,

and the present is what your life is,

and you are capable

of choosing what will be,

darling citizen.

So come to the pond,

or the river of your imagination,

or the harbor of your longing,

and put your lips to the world.

And live

your life.”

– “Mornings at Blackwater,” by Mary Oliver

Happy New Year!
