PHOTO ESSAY: A walk in Nature, at winter’s end, with Shadow

So nice to have Ann K. back! What a wonderful, grounded, humble and deeply observant post. Indeed, “the only ‘correct’ approach to this beautiful world is awe and reverence.”

On a personal, related note, I’ve been on a mini-mission to introduce more evergreens to this sorry spot of Northern InDiana. I’m happy to report we have all of these green things and more growing in our yard now, and I’ve begun conversations with our city arborist to plant more evergreens around town to help mitigate extreme winter air pollution and provide some much needed color and beauty in this grey time of year. Every time I go on a walk, I make a special point to thank the blue spruce and other green beings for cleaning our air and brightening our landscapes. Tree friends are among the very best kinds of friends!

    Dearest Laura, Such lovely views of nature and insightful comments. Makes me want to get out walking along the river and creek.  We’ll do that soon!  Dad seems a bit better today but I still wouldn’t want to leave him for long. Besides, it’s raining cats and dogs! Love, Momma

  2. Thank you, Momma! We’ll have to take a walk by Monocacy when David and I visit. I’ve been telling him about that place. Thanks for the update on Dad. I’ll call again soon. Love you and can’t wait to see you both! xoxo
