Cold, white snow cover me, in a blanket of purity with flakes of truth that are unique, cover me so that I may rest untroubled beneath your softness dormant, safe, undisturbed. I know spring will come and I will burst into life again but for now cover me. ©Sharron R. McMillan

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference. ~Robert Frost
The ideals which have always shown before me and filled me with the joy of living are goodness, beauty and truth
Like mushrooms in the moss, houses appear overnight where once deer and birds shared solitude with trees. Like ant's single-minded march to unknown destinations we lug all we own from home to home telling ourselves this will be the last move. Until forests become ant hills, woodland paths become highways, trees become extinct and bird song is only heard through ear phones. We find ourselves searching for the quiet, peaceful place that once was home. ©Sharron R. McMillan

Sharp Shinned Hawk is often seen as a messenger from the gods. It is also a symbol of strength, courage, and speed. In addition, the hawks’ sharp talons were seen as a sign of protection, and their sleek feathers were associated with grace and beauty.
We saw this hawk as we walked back down our road after walking out for the mail yesterday. A lovely omen methinks.
Bottom half of the goat barn door is made. Now eldest daughter has COVID so building has screeched to a stop. Hope she’s back on the ladder again soon.
This is behind a wire fence so the deer can’t get at it. It’s still lovely even though it’s getting colder out.
Watching the goat barn being built.
Tweet, twitter, Instagram, call, text, web cam - get it done, see it now, never wait, don't know how. Envision, dream what you desire, tiny sparks that light a fire. The joy of wanting seems most daunting- Believe. Wait. Anticipate. ©Sharron R. McMillan
We cannot change the world by a new plan, project, or idea.~Henri Nouwen
We cannot even change other people by our convictions, stories, advice and proposals, but we can offer a space where people are encouraged to disarm themselves,
lay aside their occupations and preoccupations and listen with attention and care
to the voices speaking in their own centre.
