Picture of the Day
January 13, 2019


            went back to
harvest more reeds, today the ground was
frozen solid but the air was warm with
       golden sun and a brilliant blue sky.
instead of stooping with a sickle i found
it easier to simply kick the brittle reeds             at their base; also
quicker to cull the good ones on the fly while stomping
 the rejects      down. i wandered deep into the reeds
                          and sat a while completely surrounded, far from
                       it all, warm     in the windbreak
                                             despite the thick ice
                                                   under my feet.
