Last January I resolved to start a blog and to post every day for a year. At the time I expected to be full time in the mountains but, some months ago, I returned to daily commuting to the "city and alleys" so it has been a challenge keeping up the pace.
This year we plan to travel regularly on short trips beyond the mountains so it seems right to start a new blog with a new theme. Please visit and subscribe to Sweet Wayfaring where I will be recording my new discoveries. I hope to also occasionally post here.
What a wonderful year it has been. Today's poem sums it up perfectly.
Words to walk with:
From The Forest by Judith Wright
"When first I knew this forest
its flowers were strange.
Their different forms and faces
changed with the seasons' change --
white violets smudges with purple,
the wild-ginger spray,
ground-orchids small and single
haunted my day: ...
Now that its vines and flowers
are named and known,
like long-fulfilled desires
those first strange joys are gone.
My search is further.
There's still to name and know
beyond the flowers I gather
that one that does not wither
the truth from which they grow."
