Note to self

Precious Moments

There were just 6 hours and 35 minutes of daylight left today.

A break in the weather provided a glimpse into the mountains, wearing their winter coat.

Not for long. The cold wind starts creeping through my layers of clothes.

My fingers go numb.

The next storm and night are approaching, back to my warm shelter.


November has been unseasonably mild in SE-Alaska, but now winter seems to get a hold of us. Temperatures plummeting  into the single digits and high winds have replaced weeks of sun and rain and balmy temperatures. Snow has come and gone three times, frozen waterfalls have formed and melted away. That’s Nature’s way. Season’s change and it takes (me) time getting used to it.


Tomorrow there will be 6 hours and 30 minutes of daylight.

Plenty of time for precious moments.

Summer Farewell – № 2

“Spring passes, remember its innocence
Summer passes, remember its exuberance
Autumn passes, remember its reverence
Winter passes, remember its perseverance”

adapted from Yoko Ono


Technically it is still summer, tell that the red currants! Shocking, in your face fall colors.
