snow haiku

now then, lets go out
to enjoy the snow ... until
I slip and fall !!

3 ~ three beautiful things

* recognizing an old memory in reclining yoga pose ~grateful for opening my eyes and reminding myself to come to the present ~ seeing the past suffering and not allowing myself to get carried away

* chana saag for lunch

* beautiful waxing crescent moon so low in the sky you want to reach out and touch it ~ clouds come slowly in and now it appears as a soft lantern

2 ~ three beautiful things

* lovely walk this morning near the university and sheep barns ~ sunshine and spring like weather

* sweet potato biscuits from here ~ with steamy bowl of soup

* noticing first bloom on yuletide camellia
