on cross-country skiing at night…

So this one was ACTUALLY PUBLISHED… in the local paper. :)  Just had to pick another snow-poem, in honour of what’s coming. Besides, I’m dying to use that squirrel-in-the-snow picture again! Moon Communion Fresh, full flood of glow-light Renders glisteny … Continue reading
