Beyond Us

I wish you a good year. Today was a hibernation day for us, and last night we connected by phone with old friends, who stood in the woods looking at the moon. I am weary, grateful, and glad. Much is beyond me. Here is a book I hope to read in 2012, with many others. Reading is good. Books are good. I still like to hold them in my hand and turn the pages. I love books. In a way, they are the humans beyond us.

Hibernation does the soul good. Enjoy it while you can.

Thank you for the heads up about "The Animals Beyond Us". I clicked over to the link and enjoyed the poem excerpt there. The title is intriguing. I like your twist on the title as applicable to books. Interesting concept to think through.

Best wishes and here's to restorative sleep!
