The Way of Nature

Black's Nook, Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

Swans on the Pond... Cleaning their feathers... Methodical. Meticulous... Their long necks twisting and turning. Reaching the most distant vanes... Splashing the water... Amid all the motions, sparkles sliding down the plumes... Flapping wings... The Way of Nature. Tao is staring at me...

Black's Nook: ... cleaning feathers...

Black's Nook: ... methodical...

Black's Nook: ... meticulous...

Black's Nook: ... harmonious...

Black's Nook: ... amid all the motions...

Black's Nook: ... the way of nature...

... Hello Colorful...

Lincoln Conservation Land, Massachusetts

I broke my wrist and had the surgery last week. Resting at home with my healing hand, I remember...
Her Latin name is Sialia Sialis. Populace calls her Eastern Bluebird. What a stupid name! How about Western Long-Legged?... I am referring to Pjer... Says all about our relationship with Nature. NON EXISTENT... I have never seen her before. And could not have believed I will meet her on this cold and snowy day... hello colorful...

Lincoln: ... hello colorful...

Lincoln: ... I am sure you have a name...

Lincoln: ... but I don't know your speech...

Lincoln: ... on this cold and snowy day...

... With Smile...

Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

It is sunny today. Just a day after billions of snowflakes touched my spirits... again... Today, the Sun gives her light. Opening the Shadow's Playbook. And making the White shine... with smile... 

Fresh Pond: ... after the blizzard... all is well...

Fresh Pond: ... quietly curving...

Fresh Pond: ... Antoni Gaudi lurking...

Fresh Pond: ... in the upper stories...

Fresh Pond: ... engaged...

Fresh Pond: ... and absorbed...

Fresh Pond: ... into the woods...

Fresh Pond: ... so close...

Fresh Pond: ... with them...

Fresh Pond: ... up to the sky...

Fresh Pond: ... today, the Sun gives her light...
Fresh Pond: ... with smile...

Fresh Pond: ... delicately webbing...

Fresh Pond: ... on the pathway...

Fresh Pond: ... being with it...

Fresh Pond: ... on the stage...

Fresh Pond: ... in the grain...

Fresh Pond: ... themselves...

Mystified...

Across the Pond... A lady with dog stops and asks: What are you looking at?... What do I say?...

Warming February

Cambridge, Massachusetts

Just days ago, we had the warmest February day ever recorded here. It reached 22°C (71°F)... Red-winged blackbirds have arrived. Nibbling on the last season's seeds. And making themselves known... Waiting for their ladies... My Silver Maple is waking up. Is it a bit early? I hope she knows... Others still asleep...

Cambridge: Arrived

Cambridge: Nibbling on the last season's seeds

Cambridge: Is it a bit early? I hope she knows...

Cambridge: Awaiting
