“Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,
Arrives the snow, and, driving o’er the fields,
Seems nowhere to alight: the withered air
Hides hills and woods, the river, and the heaven,
And veils the farm-house at the garden’s end.
The sled and traveler stopped, the courier’s feet
Delayed, all friends shut out, and housemates sit
Around the radiant fireplace, enclosed
In a tumultuous privacy of storm.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Daily Good: From the Oldest Forest in Montana
When a forest gets to be this old and untouched, it becomes something more than a forest. It becomes what we would think of as a mind, with history, knowledge, memory, and foresight.
- Rick Bass –
From the Oldest Forest in Montana
“I had to go into the old forest seventy times before I heard it speak, and then it was only one word, ‘urgency’. Each time, I had been listening, hoping I’d hear something, as I walked carefully across the rotting spines of fallen giants, which lay in dizzying geometries atop older fallen giants, which lay upon other now buried giants — still holding their carbon, deep down into the earth, deep down into history, and yet still in service to the living — a sarcophagus of the ancient forest. No place for bulldozers.” Writer and wilderness activist Rick Bass shares more.

Treehugger: My Design Tips for Forest Gardening on a Small Scale
You can do a lot with a tiny plot of land.
When you think of a forest, you are likely to imagine a large area with dense tree cover. But forest gardening, while it mimics a natural forest or woodland ecosystem in many ways, does not have to resemble one in size.
EarthSky News: Mercury before sunrise: Start watching around February 8
Mercury before sunrise
There are five planets you can see with the unaided eye, and Mercury is the hardest to spot. Not because it’s the dimmest. When Mercury is at its brightest, it outshines Saturn. It’s the most difficult because, as the innermost planet, Mercury never strays far from the sun in Earth’s sky.

Pagan Playlist: Kati Rán – SUURIN
“The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.”
— Oliver Wendell Holmes
We are all on a life-long journey. It is a search for who we are and why we are here. It is a journey that expands our consciousness.
There is an urge within each of us to move forward in life. It is an urge to become more whole, to find more meaning, and eventually to help others. It is human nature to strive for a sense of well-being.
We all go through the same growth cycles, though our experiences may appear entirely different. By understanding the process of personal and spiritual growth, we can work more effectively with the process, instead of fighting and resisting it.
“We can learn to be the catalysts for our own change.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach
A Note from the Universe
Just act normal.
If you just let anyone know about your awareness of those in the unseen doing your bidding, or the population shifts now being sparked by your very words, or the circumstances and events presently being crafted by your thoughts, you might create the illusion that you’re from a not-so-distant parallel star system, possessing mysterious powers, favored by fate, here to save the world.
And, man-oh-man, you do not want that to happen.

“The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is the example of the eternal seductiveness of life.”
The flower: so simple, elegant, and sweet. It is a symbol of beauty, and a representation of life expressing itself. We are drawn to them. It’s no wonder that we love to give and receive flowers.

Daily Tarot: The Pope
Today can be easy if you don’t try to swim upstream. Do what’s expected of you (and what you need to do, anyway) and don’t rebel, at least not outwardly. You’re given plenty of authority to convince people to help you if necessary, and there should be few if any arguments. Be calm, respect authority, and you’ll automatically be given the respect you deserve, plus more. Get a lot done!
