Let There Be Light (and a Happy Doggie!)

According to scientists, we are experiencing one
of the darkest winters in Pacific Northwest history.
It doesn't keep me from walking, it only makes
it more imperative to get out! Today, I found the
remains of an owl's nest the wind had blown
down and inspected the contents for bones, 
feathers, and was too cold to photograph as my hands would have frozen taking 
off warm gloves and tomorrow
we may even have lowland snow!
But we humans aren't the only ones rejoicing
in even a Sliver of the Bright: This Labradoodle is having the time of his life running across grass so wet and soggy that trees are even falling over, but who cares? For him and those of us willing to brave the cold, piercing wind screaming across the Bay into our souls, Life is beautiful, even if only in rare slivers of Light
that pierce the Heart of Darkness.
{By the time my walk was done and my body all warmed up, I was able to
capture the labradoodle: the owl's nest will be featured if the wind doesn't blow
it away before I can get back to it.}

Oooops, nearly forgot: GO SEAHAWKS!
