sunrise: 6:52 blog time remaining: 30 sunrises
December came in like a lamb. The air is gentle this morning, and the skies awash with a subtle, watercolor beauty.
I have sung the praises of trees in these posts many times before. I can't help myself, especially this time of year. I welcome their naked frames back for the winter season. Unclothed, they are exquisite, and allow us a broader and more far-reaching prospect on the world. So much more is revealed to our seeking eyes with the retreat of foliage and summer growth.
This darkening time of year could be seen as a time to burrow down into our shelters like hibernating animals. The exterior world seems to encourage the opposite - open up, look around, see farther.
