and a year later...

I came back to look at this, my old blog, today, after helping a gal with starting her own. Gosh, it's been a long time, and so much has happened between times.

I must say this old blog is looking abandoned.

How sad. I really use to enjoy thinking about what to post.
Now Face Book hogs all the 'puter time and the blog has gone to, what, poetry! salient quotes! I'm ashamed.
Must try harder.

Well, I have collected a boatload of new quotes, so here's one to restart the posting.

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one
     wild and precious life?” - Mary Oliver

After a snowstorm

(I traded the book away on paperback swap)
"I am so glad I don't have to go out. A whole day before me in which to think and be." ... "It is rather like living in a vast cosmic mood-swing here now."
-(the morning after a snowstorm) May Sarton, Journal of a Solitude

"Always dark... no sun... snow flying all the time, terrible storms, cold, very cold, and a great deal of ice there."
- Inuit description of Hell, recounted on Baffin Island, 1862

'Yet in a little close, however keen
The winter comes, I find a patch of green,
Where robins, by the miser winter made
Domestic, flit and perch upon the spade"
- John Clare
