Life Moves Forward Relentlessly—Tuesday, January 29, 2019

The month is January…still.

I look at the calendar daily waiting for the moment when we turn into February.

Each day is winter, long and drawn out and cold, but filled with routines that mush us through each dark and dreary day

But if it is long for me…then it is longer for the wildlife.ย  The coyotes are brazen and bad, coming right into the yard, searching for food…not good.

They need to search someplace else.

The rancher said he will be coming any day now to gather up his Momma cows and take them to his ranch home…he wants to have them closer to monitor the births.

He is wise.ย  With the coyotes so active there is nothing so vulnerable as a cow in labor.

Inside the very worst of winter, there are still things to find of great joy and beauty…so outside I go—

Each day there is something so wonderful that I need to record it with my camera

The bliss of each day is just right there, waiting for me to stumble into it

So, yes, life moves forward

But as each day passes

I realize that being outside stabilizes my need to by-pass winter

Into true happiness for the healing magic of the day/night captured on camera

Nothing mediocre/drab/or unexciting exists if I just open my eyes.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. I know you’ll be sorry to lose the cows so soon, but as you said, it is probably for the best. I really like the beauty you’ve shared with us in this post, as well as your attitude about what we can see if we only open our eyes. Thanks!


  2. It’s definitely a long wintry month! Dull and drab as you say but then there are those beautiful blue skies and sunshine days, freezing cold but so uplifting for the soul ๐Ÿ™‚ As you said there is beauty in each day if we just open our eyes and look beyond ๐Ÿ˜€


  3. Enjoy your visiting native birds and be vigilant to “you know what” species!

    Quite interesting on your rancher and the “monitoring” of the calving. He should be
    a very busy person!! His sleeping habits might be in for a shock??


  4. I’m with you Linda, just waiting to turn that calendar! And this is the coldest week yet for us. -30’s the next couple of days. Come on February!!!!!
