HANNA'S WALK

Impressions from January

Old trees are like living cairns.

We can learn a lot from trees: they’re always grounded but never stop reaching heavenward.
Everett Mayor

Didn’t I warn you?

Did I forget to warn you about
The physical well-being
The feeling of happiness
The joy
And of course
The urge for repetition
Even when it rains like today.

When the buzzard flies low over my head.
When a city person sits on the river bank in the pouring rain with his briefcase under the umbrella.
When a flock of starlings are exercising over the meadow.
When a pair of swans are wearing goggles. They certainly have their heads under water.
When the blackbird sits in the hedge humming spring songs in the middle of January.

Didn’t I warn you about being addicted to nature?
