"If you let go a little
you will have a little happiness.
If you let go a lot you will have a lot of happiness.
If you let go completely you will be free."

Ajahn Chah (by way of the Teachings of the Horse)

Yet another fine day to remain indoors it has been. Snow, sleet, hail and rain - we had it all before the day had hardly begun. Read a little. Drank a lot. Sonja went out so it was just the dog and I. The dog slept. When at last she stirred I had to take her out. The evilness of the day was spent. It was ok.

We walked. In a tree above us a young eagle was watched by a single crow. The eagle looked at us, thought about attacking and then thought about something else. On the thin ends of the salmonberry bushes we were slipping through grew buds. In January. Spring, out here in the farm country, will arrive early.

The most beautiful thing I have read of late. Very nice. I too see signs of spring in the horny robins in my backyard..lol.

People who say they love winter, including me, are so full of shit. What they love is drinking in winter.
