Earth...Teach Me...





"Earth, teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth, teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth, teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone.
Earth, teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring."
William Alexander

If you look closely, the beginnings of leaf buds are actually showing
up on the trees!!!  Snow or no snow, black and white aside,
spring is beginning to show itself,
 even at 8000 feet in the Sierras!!!
