walking on by


I can’t say that my youngest and I enjoy our walks as there is still so much snow on the ground here.  It is getting better though.  We have had a couple mild days and the slow is shrinking in a baby step kind of way.


The birds have arrived and have added a much loved symphony to the still air.  If I close my eyes and let the sun warm my face I can almost pretend it is summer… just because of those beautiful chirping birds.

Sometimes we stop in the drive of the old house next door, we look at the sledding tracks and the animal tracks, there is a horse named Sadie who always watches us approach and retreat. We can’t tell if she likes us or not.


When we walk I think about everything going on, usually about my children and my husband.  They are busy people.  Everyone is always coming and going, doing exciting things in the world.

But always Sawyer and I are side by side.  I look at him and he looks at me.  I think we know what the other is thinking without words. 


A constant with each step.

I adore your words and pictures. You seem to be able to take me on the walk with you. I do think that both Sadie and your wee son have their own way of "knowing" and "communicating" in their own voice. You most likely can see everything that is meant to be said and observed, in their eyes.

Wow, you are so strong to go out in that snow! I'm such a whimp in cold weather. I guess that's what comes of growing up in southern california where 70 was chilly to me. It always amazes me to see that people can go out in the cold and enjoy it. Maybe I just don't have the right equipment?

I love the photo of your little guy looking up at you! Sweet.
