Moments of Grace, First Week of the New Year

in Moments of Grace

My friend Lyn Belisle sent me this birthday collage. I love it!

slough-ice

Down came the Yule decorations last week, and in blew the New Year with a freezing chill. We greeted it with a walk in the freezing sunshine!. The ice in the slough, so beautiful.

 

There was this lovely little snowfall, gone by the end of the day.

In town, on a walk in the rain by the bay between appointments, I was surprised by blossoms on the fifth day of the new year. They are beautiful, but much too early. A sign of climate change that is troubling.

A friend and her girls made this Guadalupe out of beach stones for me. I love it more than I can say!

    Joanna, you are radiant! Your words, photographs, and artwork continue to feed my soul year after year. To quiet my world, I have unsubscribed from many wonderful newsletters, but not yours. It’s sweet, beautiful, and true … I’m sure a reflection of your spirit. Wishing you a year of deeply satisfying art making, such that your heart sings like never before! with appreciation …

    Hi Joanna,
    a very late Happy Birthday to you… and please relax regarding the blossoms at the bay. Nothing with climate change. They are the blossoms of Viburnum that has some sorts that bloom im midwinter. They smell deliciously and for me, they are a very early sign and promise that Spring will come again! All the best to you 🙂
