I seem to be overwhelmed by busyness lately.  We are leaving Saturday for a 3-week trip.  Hope all is well with you!

I don't know why, but these spaces resonate for me.  (And scare me a little, too!)

Global Warming?

Snowdrops today on our street!!!

The snowdrops are a couple month early and might be killed if it gets seasonal again!!!  This Detroit, not Florida!

It's Imbolc, Midwinter!  Happy midwinter, it's about half gone!  Of course the second half may be much worse.

Yesterday I submitted my Fellowship app and today I applied for Social Security!  It will take me a while to catch up, but hopefully, I'll be around soon.

Save the libraries!




I walked 48 minutes from my house to the library and back, not counting the time I walked around inside the library.

Our libraries are in danger because of republicans, the internet and people buying books for their reading pleasure--which is a good thing for authors, but a bad thing for the poor.

Our libraries and closing one by one.  DO you care?  I DO!!!  I use the library every week.  Saves me lots of money and helps people can't afford to buy books.  At the library, they are FREE to read.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY, read a book.  (From the library!)

AND get out and vote for the libraries!

(The first image is a pretty house between my house and the library.)
