    "Highwire: betwixt each season's balance: cautious steps."
    That's right where we are for sure. Still navigating that delicate balance. I did put my snowshoes away, but I haven't gotten the spring jackets out yet. :)

    Thank you, John. Yes, the frozen ground is thawing and each step leaves an imprint. It's a good feeling after a long winter!

    Hi Julie —

    I like the notion of the Earth personified as self-actualized and self aware. Beyond our total human comprehension, and a model for us to live a more trusted, organic life.

    with the wind's
    shifts of thought
