Small Stones #18

Today I heard the chickadees. 

It has been very cold (-20 and below) and finally it warmed up to around 23 degrees Fahrenheit.  The chickadees sang their "chicka-dee-dee-dee-dee-dee" song, a very welcome verse to hear during the silence of winter.

Our snow has settled and the days stretch a little longer, as do the pink hues of the sun rises and sunsets along the mountains.  No longer does the very dark seep in to stay.

I'm sure more snow will come, but for now what rests is best kept silent, and our lives continue on.
