I'm leaving the Blue mountains for the green mountains this week.
Spring is already coming to this home; the peepers are peeping, the geese are overhead and the songbirds are boasting and flirting!
It will still be deep Winter in Vermont, la, at least i like snow!

I Love Virginia.
Love our little house in the Country Store...
Its so lovely here in Floyd; on the mountain ridge. The colours are Gold and Green. In Vermont by now,the landscape will be Grey and Brown.The leaves all gone; the grass dead and brown.

Every day i learn more about the creatures and plants that live here. So diverse!

The people here are friendly and familiar. Northern folks are guarded, distant and secretive. I was always like a chickadee in the quiet wood there.

I was reading a few entries down;about my mom~sad stuff.

Happily she is sooo much better! I guess the anesthesia from the two surgeries really messed with her.
I never realized the effects could last so long.

I'm so grateful to have my mom back ~ overjoyed truely.

I'm happy in the snow.It's my 3rd winter in the Northeast kingdom of vermont...we have Serious snow here!
When i was little (as soon as i could walk)-if we were not in school,my mom would push all four of us out into the snow.Next,our skiis and toboggan would be thrown out after us.We learned to love winter here!!
Back in those days this region had incredible amounts of snow...snow piles three times the height of us! Picture "Ethan Frome"...it looked like that.
I remember it with fondness...the hill behind our house was filled with giggling children that also had been pushed out into the snow by their parents. Skiis on the feet of children that had just learned to walk.
Good memories...my goal for this winter is to make a nekkid snow angel...but unless i can figure out how to "self photograph" with the equipment i have,it maybe can't be captured on film.Still going to do it tho :D
:)

Call you up in the middle of the night,
like a fire flower miles away,
you were there like a blow torch burnin',
I was a key that could use a little turnin'

So tired that I couldn't even sleep,
so many secrets I couldn't keep,
promised myself I wouldn't weep,
one more promise I couldn't keep

It seems no one can help me now,
I'm in too deep theres no way out,
this time I have really let myself pull stray

Runaway train never goin' back,
wrong way on a one way track
seems like I should be getting somewhere,
somehow I'm neither here nor there

Can you help me remember how to smile,
make it somehow seem all worth while,
how on earth did I get so jaded,
last mystery seemed so naked

I can go where no one else can go,
I know what no one else has known,
here I am just a drowning in the brain,
with a ticket for a runaway train

Everything seems judded inside,
day and night earth and sky,
somehow I just don't believe it

Runaway train never goin' back,
wrong way on a one way track
seems like I should be getting somewhere,
somehow I'm neither here nor there

Want a ticket for a runaway train?,
like a madman laughin' at the rain,
a little out of touch little in the brain,
its just easier to deal with the pain

Runaway train never goin' back,
wrong way on a one way track
seems like I should be getting somewhere,
somehow I'm neither here nor there

Runaway train never comin' back,
runaway train tearin' up the track,
runaway train burnin' in my veins,
run away but it always seems the same

What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind...
**William Wordsworth's poem "Ode on Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood":**

Almost 1 year clean...amazing to me.
Life feels and looks so very much different.I really feel like i'm living honestly.
The pain sucks...especially since jack and i both have chronic pain.
But yanno,i think that a lot of people just believe that they should not have any pain.The thing is,if you look at life honestly,everybody experiences pain in one way or another.It's the way life is.
The happy thing is that there is so much joy...sooo much beauty.
As i go day by day,trusting life,i'm able to notice that.I'm just soaking it in.

Jack has a robin...he says it is his "higher power".
Since jack came here in the Spring;the porch is his most comfortable place to be.He plays his electric guitar there...rocks the neighborhood :)
So this particular robin loves the music...he flys to a low perch on the pine tree and sings his heart out.

<img400*0:stuff/jacks%20robin.jpg>
For the last week or so the robin wasn't around much...he had other stuff to do,like feeding his fledglings.
But he's back now and jack is happy.I'm glad he has something magical in his life.He says his robin keeps him on the right path...i'm really happy for that.

It's a lonely sort of day here in the frozen north,
we just heard about 50 gunshots outside,and my mom called up the stairs "Maybe someone is shooting rats".Heh,yeah,maybe.
