It was a rush to the finish, but I did complete this project by the end of the year as I had hoped. Time for new projects in 2017.
Happy New Year!

“How glorious the perfect stillness and peace of the winter landscape.”
— Henry David Thoreau, from Winter: The Writings of Henry David Thoreau, vol. 8, December 31, 1854
“We must go out and re-ally ourselves to Nature every day. We must make root, send out some little fibre at least, even every winter day. . . . Staying in the house breeds a sort of insanity always.”
— Henry David Thoreau, from Winter: The Writings of Henry David Thoreau, vol. 8, December 29, 1856
I took Thoreau’s advice and walked around Green Lake on this frosty January morning. It was crisp and clear. I saw three great blue herons, a bald eagle perched in a tree, honking Canada geese, foraging ducks, and other Seattleites out to enjoy the fresh air.
