Buckle down

Stormy days ahead around here. Time to stay put reading a good book. Or go out and catch some herring?


“In March the soft rains continued, and each storm waited courteously until its predecessor sunk beneath the ground.”

You Know It’s Spring… [№ 2]

when you open your pantry and you realize the selection of delicious jam from last years berry harvest is dwindling. And those jars of dried mushrooms are disappearing, too.

There is still plenty of salmon in the freezer, but the next spawning season is months away. Around goes the cycle of consumption and replenishment .

Appreciating everything nature has to offer.


“Nature’s first green is gold.”

A Kirlian cloud.

There is no such thing as a Kirlian cloud, but in the days of alternative facts…

Seriously, out of the blue, after a long dark winter there  is more light than darkness. Almost too much. Gone are the days, when it was easy to catch a sunrise, or there was plenty of night time to watch the Northern lights. More light than darkness. Now comes the time of filling the tank. No more frantic reading, excessive cooking and baking. Winter is over. Well, there is still snow coming down, ice on the road, strong winds, but I can feel it, that sun light. It’s going to put an end to another winter.

Aren’t you glad?
