In the Dark of December

"I heard a bird sing in the dark of December,
a magical thing and sweet to remember.
We are nearer to Spring than we were in September...

...I heard a bird sing in the dark of December."  ~ Oliver Herford

Winter Solstice

"On the longest night we search for the light,
 and we find it deep within...

(photo of a Short-Eared Owl hunting after sunset)

Open your eyes to embrace what is wise,
and see the light of your own soul shining."  ~ Lisa Thiel

Gravity of Love

"If you're in the eye of the storm,
just think of the lonely dove, 
the experience of survival 
is the key to the gravity of love..."

Tonight's full "super moon" rising in western New York.

Starlings and blackbirds migrating under the light of the full moon.

Luna in all her brilliant glory!
