The Lightest Touch

Good poetry begins with
the lightest touch,
a breeze arriving from nowhere,
a whispered healing arrival,
a word in your ear,
a settling into things,
then like a hand in the dark
it arrests your whole body,
steeling you for revelation.

In the silence that follows
a great line
you can feel Lazarus
deep inside
even the laziest, most deathly afraid
part of you,
lift up his hands and walk toward the light.

~ David Whyte from "Everything is Waiting for You"

Late Winter

As we go through our normal day to day late winter chores, this year we're busy getting ready for some early arrivals.  Nine of the ewes were bred early by two 'bad boy' fence jumping rams and are due, not in April with the rest of the flock, but in the next couple weeks.  It is a challenge to adjust our usual spring lambing and feeding routine to a winter one, but we're working hard on the logistics.
We're also working with Tilly, the family milk cow (wow, it feels really great saying that) who will be having her first calf in March.  We're so excited about this addition to our family and our daily routine.  So wish us luck for the next month or so, it's been a long time since we've milked a cow.  Oh, and be sure to stay tuned for the baby pictures ☺
