Still, there is a stark beauty to the bare woods, knowing that in just a few short weeks this cold World will once again be alive and colorful.

Perhaps in our urban environment we have gotten too far removed from the cycles of life to appreciate just how beautiful, short and tenuous Life really is.

When Spring returns, revel in its beauty and look forward to the bountiful days of Summer.

But don’t forget the cold and lifeless days that came just before. They are Nature’s reminder to us all that the gift of life is but a temporary one.
