I must admit that the last few days of this project have me feeling uninspired and, as happens from time to time, like Sisyphus pushing my boulder up that hill. It’s a self-imposed deadline but a deadline just the same. This one is from my walk. :-)




There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you…. In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself. ~ Ruth Stout
