januarys moments are a bit tantalizing 

_DSC8473 edit 3.jpg



the freshness of air

the simplicity in being outdoors

balancing the contrasts of warmth and cold 

the light of day lasting an hour longer

 star filled skies

teasing delights of sunshine 

a wave of unexpected sadness

 comfort in knowing she was and is at peace 

haunting reminders of lost connections that run deep both near and far


Dr. Seuss Once Said:

"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory."




[pur-suh-veer-uh ns]


steady, persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state

especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles or discouragement


continuance in a state of grace to the end

is a season of the past

as winter has came

and taken her place

all have fallen

except this one

it has hung


 between the branches

unwilling to let go

John Quincy once said:

"Patience and Perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish"
