The winged footed messenger is Mercury in Roman borrowed from the Greek god Hermes.  Which ever name you prefer, this quick silver moves from the eternal world of the gods to the temporal world of us humans bringing the hopes of the new year.  May this coming one be your best year ever.

Life seems to vacillate from complicated complexity to clarity in this organic flowing of forms.

The truth is that I love to hibernate, hide away from the world in the peace of the inner.  But, alas the outer is always calling to come back out and attend to its desires.

Faces at a Meeting

Here are some of the faces at a recent meeting I attended. They all seemed to have downcast smiles.  Did they know something that I didn't?
