Happy holidays!

Happy holidays to you and yours!

Wherever you find yourself today, I wish you warmth, peace, and safety.  We are snowed in at home right now and our original plans for the day have been scrapped in the name of safety, but I am grateful to be able to say that these three things are still checked off today: we are warm, we are peaceful, and we are safe.  My wish is the same for you, your loved ones, and every single person out there.

Frost on the windows…snow on the ground…grateful

Postcard from the Canadian Rockies.

Autumn meets winter in Larch Valley.

It’s shoulder season again – my favourite season – and we’ve just been chased down from the alpine of the Canadian Rocky Mountains by bad weather.  The sky had been threatening all morning, but in the mountains such threats make no promises one way or another so we went ahead and hit the trail up to Sentinel Pass.  Hours later, the weather finally materialized overhead and a cold wet snow blew heavy in our faces with …

If winter was a feeling.

Yoko Ono
