blowing in the wind

live with intention

walk to the edge.

listen hard. laugh
practice wellness.

play with abandon.
continue to learn.
appreciate your friends.

choose with no regret.
do what you love.
live as if this is all there is.
Maryanne R. Hershey

after a few days of relatively warm temperatures, winter has returned with intention or is it a vengeance! the temperatures have plummeted and the wind is fierce and howling. I ran across this quote yesterday and was reminded of the last time it was snowy and wintry playing with olivia the dog. she loves to play with abandon when winter rages with intention. I hope I can hold some olivia spirit in mind as I head out and confront the elements today I expect we will be walking on the edge if not blown right off!

That's a great verse, but I am surprised Ms. Hershey did not mention chocolate in that mantra.

Lovely quote. Curiously enough I was chatting with a friend this morning and we were saying pretty much the same thing.

Stay snug and warm - and play lots - it's good for warming you up!

Snow ! I'm living near Paris and we did not have any that winter. I don't know if we'll have some.
In the eastern part of France from where I'm coming, old Mountains Vosges, near Germany it is snowing since yesterday. Just a few and it is beginning. It seems to me the weather is no more as cold now than in the past....
