As Winter melts into Spring, I have been musing on the shape of trees. In winter we can see their “bones” or structure most clearly. As I walk I see Fehu everywhere, reaching up to the skies. These are primarily deciduous trees, and come summer we will not be able to see this shape for […]
Today is March 14th, 3.14 or Pi Day. It is one of my favorite under-celebrated holidays. For the record, I have never met a pie I didn’t like. Ask my co-workers…each person hosts the birthday treats for the next co-worker birthday. And each year when I am asked what type of cake or treats I […]

Happy Summer! All around me I can Mother Earth’s harvest – berry laden branches, fields of greens, beets, carrots, grapes on the vine, plums, tomatoes, zucchini…the list goes on and on.
