Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
– John Muir

So How Is Winter for You?

Everyone keeps asking – since I’ve moved from San Francisco to the Chicago area – how it’s going for me. How am I adjusting to winter in the midwest. Actually, I think that the snow is beautiful, and, really, it’s people that I miss. And I stumbled upon this quote the other day:

People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.
- Anton Chekhov

But I don notice that people don't sit on the snow cushions on these benches

But I do notice that people don’t sit on the snow cushions on these benches

Wisdom of the Ages

In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.

A sunrise like this brings a day worth exploring!

A sunrise like this brings a day worth exploring!

The Wisdom of Rachel Carson

One way to open your eyes is to ask yourself, “What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?”

– Rachel Carson
