more fun than a barrel of monkeys

I thought this was a good one for the upcoming Chinese New Year -
it IS the Year of the Monkey after all!

hiking inspired art

I've been diligent about taking a hike nearly every week this winter, so different from hiking during the other seasons but lovely and inspiring in different ways.

I nearly always encounter red squirrels in the woods (and in our own yard of course) along with chickadees, woodpeckers, crows, and hawks. When there is freshly fallen snow, there is the added treat of finding many types of animal tracks even if you don't get to see the actual animal.

Whenever I'm on an extra long hike, I always think to myself how nice it would be to be able to get a nice hot cup of espresso, not that I want the woods to be cluttered with cafes, but wouldn't be great to stumble upon one run by squirrels?

ode to a chickadee

oh I'll be free, just like that bluebird

I am not one that loses it whenever a celebrity dies
but when I saw the news early Monday morning that David Bowie
had passed on to the other side
I burst into tears before I could
even grasp what it meant

my collage as a tribute 

put on your red shoes and dance the blues

for David Bowie
