Snowy day clouds to the east

This was the view on January 9, best seen by clicking on the image. This morning the rain has returned, and most of the snow and ice are gone. Yesterday I took an hour walk in the snow and ice in Whatcom Falls Park. Sure felt good to be walking.


A friend mentioned Stephen Levine a few days ago. It was in the early 1980s that another friend recommended Who Dies?, a book that I have read and re-read for its wholehearted wholeheartedness that honors heartbreak and renewal in equal measure. It brought me to tears and laughter, sometimes at the same time.

It is where I first read:

"The mind creates the abyss, and the heart crosses it." (Sri Nisargadatta).

'Sure felt good to be walking'. You bet!

Wonderful icy landscape. It's amazing how a scene can be so transformed by a little ice or snow.

The best part of winter is right after the snow and ice, and the sky has mostly cleared. The clarity is breathtaking. Glad to hear you had time for a walk.
