It is December and it is snowing

two statements that belong together, this title. It seems it has been awhile since two elements that belong together are. Since any kind of alignment has existed. It is December and it is snowing. It is life and there is hope. It is love and there is life. All good.

At last.

May this continue.

And now, it is December and it is snowing (and I am clearing the snow off my car, for what reason, I don’t know because it is winter, and, happily, I am mostly walking.), and after completing this task, another two inches of snow covered all. It is December in New England after all and it is snowing.

It is air and it is breathable. May this be so as long as there is air may breath be taken. May our respiration be safe.

I find I don’t have many words today after all. But I wanted to put my hand in. Perhaps before December closes, before 2020 is a history, I will find more words and will share them. For now, one final balance:

It is coffee, and I am drinking it.( One of the stablest pairings I can offer.)

REMINDER!! Don’t forget, those who know, and mark it down, those who are just learning this–We are fast approaching the night of December 21st, when in the southwest sky here in the Northeast, two hours after sunset the planets of Jupiter and Saturn will be located so close to each other in the sky that they will seem like a bright star; first time in hundreds of years and last time until 60 years from now. You will be able to see it with your naked eye. Better with binoculars. Even better with a telescope. And December 21st is only the best night, December 18th through December 23rd are all nights on which you can look, and if the sky is clear, see.

I like to explore, to observe. I like to be within what is around. There is always something to wonder about and to ponder. There is always something.. My favorite ways to get to places are bicycling and walking; or reading, or thinking, or asking. Please feel free to ask back, as I continue to wonder out loud, express joy or concern, or, sometimes, talk through my hat.

  1. Hello Kate!

    That is great news about Jupiter and Saturn. I am making a note of it. It’s doubtful I’ll be around in another 60 years to see it then. I should have a pretty good view of it if the weather is clear. I have binoculars but no telescope.

    Hope you and Mark celebrate a very blessed and Merry Christmas and a healthy and much better New Year!
