Perhaps I am a bear, or some hibernating animal underneath, for the instinct to be half asleep all winter is so strong in me.

the animal merely makes a bed, which warms with his body, in sheltered place; but man, having discovered fire, boxes up some air in a spacious apartment, and warms that, instead of robbing himself, makes that his bed, in which he can move about divested of more cumbrous clothing, maintain a kind of summer in the midst of winter, and by means of windows even admit the light, and with a lamp lengthen out the day. Thus he goes a step or two beyond instinct, and saves a little time for the fine arts.
from house- warming...D. Thoreau
~first snow of the me inspiration to move into my fine art and find peace in that simple pleasure...xo

~return to the beginning; become a child again...

the wise are Children who know...their minds have been emptied of the countless minute somethings of small learning, and filled with the wisdom of the Great Nothing, the Way of the universe.
~from the Tao of Pooh, Chapter.. Nowhere and Nothing
~just having see all that surrounds me, gives me peace and freedom to be who I need to this moment.

views of my world...arrangements...

"the beautiful is everywhere; perhaps more in the arrangement of your saucepans on the white walls of your kitchen than in your eighteenth-century living room or in the official museums."
