Wintry weather

Winter surf
It's nearly the new year, and we've had the most wintry weather that I can remember here in Southern California! In Laguna we don't have snow, but the chill has set into my bones, making winter a stark reality. As 2010 departs, and 2011 begins, I am thankful that winter is only a moment in time.

Winter Trees by William Carlos Williams

All the complicated details
of the attiring and
the disattiring are completed!
A liquid moon
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold.

Winter in Joshua Tree

Wishing you all a very happy new year! Thank you for your continued support, and looking forward to sharing 2011 with each and every one of you!

Happy New Year!!
