Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

safely back to ct. after a rainy drive down from vt.
lowered thermostat=very chilly house.
fire in the fireplace=a warm spot to catch up on blogs
and to do reading for upcoming 
BoT meetings at earlham later this week.

i live in the midst of abundance.
of friends and family,
of health,
of safety and comfort and healthy food,
of  good and meaningful work,
of dreams and aspirations.

 this time of year invites
 an ingathering of the spirit. 

"full" i would have to say.
and perched for what comes next.


  1. It is always so refreshing to read your blogs and look at your photos. Such an inspiring lady with very creative talents. Happy Monday.

  2. It sounds like we were on the same wavelength yesterday, Karen.
    This looks like a wonderful chair in which to reflect and relax!

  3. Glad you are safely back in CT, Karen. The roads could have been pretty treachorous given how everything seemed to be teetering right on the edge of freezing. The chill has definitely made me think of ingathering...and gratitude for a warm home and roof over my head.
