I see that the life of this place is always emerging beyond expectation or prediction or typicality, that it is unique, given to the world minute by minute, only once, never to be repeated. And this is when I see that this life is a miracle, absolutely worth having, absolutely worth saving. We are alive within mystery, by miracle.

To see a hillside white with dogwood bloom is to know a particular ecstasy of beauty, but to walk the gray Winter woods and find the buds which will resurrect that beauty in another May is to partake of continuity.
~ Hal Borland
Although I don’t have photos of the dogwood tree from the winter months, April was such a gloomy, rainy, chilly month that it at least qualifies as being gray (as in walking “the gray Winter woods” in the quote). Posting every day has given us all a chance to see things as they unfold. I thought it would be interesting to see the unfolding in one post.

It’s great to be home, spend the night in my own bed, listening to the familiar sounds that surround us here at Breezy Acres, and walking on familiar paths looking to see what’s new.
