In the forest, ferns cling to green along the path and Oaks rule like kings and Queens—White, Red, and Black.
My sweet dog Disco wanders through the leafless trees in her orange coat, staying reasonably close to me as she searches for something to carry or eat.
I end 2023 with a Solstice goodbye to my son David’s sweet dog LilBit who’s been part of our family and David’s community for 15 years. You had a good life full of love, warmth, and snuggles, LilBit. I’m glad we could say goodbye in November when I was in North Carolina
Wishing everyone in our struggling world a calm, gentle, and kind Winter Solstice. Soon there will be more light.
