hello there, friend,

saturday was one of those magnificent southwest virginia days that occur sometimes in the middle of the winter blahs... where the sun shines a bit and the temperatures rise and the world feels new again and full of hope. snowdrops are blooming and our hyacinths are just starting to poke up out of the soil. i have noticed the light lingering just past six in the evenings and the birds are singing loudly throughout the day. soon it will be march and that's when things really start to change around here.

the forecast for the rest of the week is gloomy, not unlike this image... and beautiful in it's own way. i'm reminded that it's the contrast between sunshine and rain that allows me to notice the beauty in each.
