Encased Leaf

Will spring come this week and free me from all our snow and ice? My guess is no, but I can wait. There's a lot of rain coming, and the thawing will continue. However, the sight of green grass is still a ways away. One good thing is that, as a we grow older, we gather many articles to take with us as our 'trip' continues. A special piece that most of us require, that's usually missing in our youth, is patience. It's an important quality for happiness. I'm patient now; spring will spring soon... I hope.

  2. Beautiful, Birdman. Though the rest of Vermont had heavy snows over the last 24 hours, in Brattleboro we've had epic rain. It has beat down and melted three-quarters of our standing snow so perhaps spring will be coming soon after all...at least to our little corner.

  5. What a beautiful photo, this delicate leaf encased in snow, and what an intriguing message about patience. I hadn't thought of that before, but yes, so true.

  10. Love your photo and the message... Patience is a lesson that I will continually study and for which I will be tested.

  11. So true, Birdman, but I have to confess I would like to be more pacient when it comes to weather because I simply hate winter! LOL! OK, OK, I know winter is mild over here, but even so.... :-)

  13. My first time to comment. I love your photos but you know what I really like the "quotes" and the dictionary. Today's word in use:
    I have several collops on my poor old body.
    Read you every day. A visitor form Kansas and my name is really Dorothy.

  14. Sort of a Buddhist riff on non-attachment. This leaf could be a fossil.

  15. You mention spring... can I bring up summer? Doesn't that paper bag get a bit stuffy in high summer? I don't know that I could blog with a paper bag over my head. Then again I'm a giant hamster, so who am I to talk...
