Feeding Chickadees

Feeding chickadees
(February 2020)


It’s not that far, really.
Just off my back deck and down the hill
Through what I still remember as pasture for our mare,
To the little wooden foot bridge o’er the stream.
No, it’s not that far in steps, though in full winter
When the snow is newly deep, the going is slow and makes you wish
You’d bothered with your snow shoes.

My nightmare on snowshoes

I love to snowshoe in the fields and woods behind my house.

Photography and me

I've been interesting in photography as long as I can remember. I tried but was a dismal failure at water colors, oil painting, charcoal, pastels, and pen and ink drawings. I knew what I wanted a piece to look like, but I could never make it happen. But photography seems to be something I can do.

I used my mother's very old Kodak Duo Six Twenty camera to take family photos on holidays and vacation trips.
