The world is new this morning as my breath blows small clouds into being. They form briefly then disappear into the thin cold air. Such cloud making is a deep life affirmation. Nothing quite like seeing your own breath. Days like this tingle you alive. The trees are glistening with early sun dancing on the … Continue reading Hoar’s whisperer
