    …or stay inside when it’s -15 degrees! (Milwaukee commenting)

    • Haha! By all means, don’t take my advice if you’re going to get frostbite 😉 I hope it warms up a little for you over the weekend, my friend!

    Tyler, lovely picture and poem. Feels like not just found a path but have also reached my goal. Btw, the picture of you on your About page with your hands spread wide, that is beautiful. What are you holding in your hands? I feel not as if you are holding but more as if you are letting go. 🙂

    • Thank you, Rexie! I appreciate your kind and thoughtful comment 🙂 I am holding onto my jacket and hat. As you noticed, I am also letting go of all my inhibitions, throwing my cares to the salty breeze & crashing sea, immersing myself in Nature. We are all part of something much bigger than ourselves & I feel blessed (and humbled) to play a small role in the life of this planet. Best wishes to you & yours in 2014 & keep up the inspired work on your blog, my friend!
      Tyler 🙂

    What a beautiful path to start a birdwatching adventure. Love that photo!

    • Thank you kindly, Lee! Yes, the Finley National Wildlife Refuge outside of Corvallis, Oregon is a wonderful place to birdwatch & enjoy Nature 🙂 Did you participate in the Christmas Bird Count this year? Best wishes to you & yours in 2014, my friend!
      Tyler 🙂

    Great pic. You have a nice eye and way of placing things in the frame of the pic so my eye naturally follows the flow of the pic. Make sense?

  9. The path is taking you straight to the tree and the shelter… well composed image 🙂

    I like the repetition of sounds. Wishing for the spring this brings to mind.

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂 Spring is just around the corner! I can’t wait! Hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend 🙂
