The North Wind

Boreas arrived.
Boreas arrived.

A vigorous, energetic north wind blew in this morning  (or maybe it was sometime overnight) pushing out into the Atlantic Ocean four days of heavy cloud cover and a variety of rains, from the misty to the drippy to the deluge that heralded the approach of the cold front last night.  The weather system might be in England by now for all I know.  Except for a few wisps of clouds here and there, the sky has an after-the-storm clarity to it, and the sun has once more returned.  It is colder now, but the big ball of light up in the sky has brought warmth for the soul.  Even the dandelions in the lawn are smiling today.

You can almost see its smile.

Robin is a photographer, artist, writer, wife, sometime poet, mom, grandma, daughter, sister, friend, and occasional traveler currently living on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. She finished a 365 commitment to get outside every day in 2011, and has turned it into a lifelong commitment taking one or more walks each day. Robin will continue to share her walks through her words and images on Breezes at Dawn. Older posts can be found at Life in the Bogs, her previous blog. Robin and her husband are in the midst of renovating the house and property they refer to as the Wabi-Sabi Ranch, 35 acres that include marsh, a dock on a tidal creek, meadows, and woodlands. Every day brings new discoveries.
