Aside

I didn’t plan to post again until after Christmas but this is too cool not to share. Ottawa is listed among the coldest Capital cities on earth during winter. Today however, THIS is happening:

I loved winter when I was a kid but it loses its appeal when your skating, skiing and tobogganing days are over. Not to mention who wants to live through a winter where the air hurts your face?

If Santa has brought me global warming this year – I’m not complaining – 18ºC!! 🙂

Patricia Randolph’s Madravenspeak: Wolf persecution is another tragedy of the commons

Please don’t click by Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Step up and call your senators. Contact information is in this reblog post.
Wolves are not the enemy. Stupidity and misinformation are.

“It is imperative that wolf delisting language, along with other harmful policy riders that weaken the Endangered Species Act, are kept out of upcoming government funding negotiations.” ~ Howling for Wolves alert.

Wolves are again the target of blood lust. This time riders are being attached to a must-pass federal budget deal. They throw Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Wyoming wolves off the Endangered Species List, permanently, and bar the courts from protecting them. The courts have been the only check and balance on good ol’ boy trophy-killing of wolves. The riders authored by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., endanger the authority of and scientific standards set by the Endangered Species Act as a safeguard for survival of species.

Please network the urgency of making calls to Johnson (202-224-5323 or via his website) and Tammy Baldwin (202-224-5653 or via her website

Circadian ~ Acrostic XII

Maidenhair Fern

orning sunlight is the visual canvas

rt of fronds in greens and golds

ridescence brushes each surface

rawing Bruges-like shadows

merald embroidery in the air

ature outside may slumber

ere in the warmth of my home

iry pinna capture the essence

n feathery greenery that whispers

eturn she will, keep faith

or this is the joy of the indoor garden

veryday magick is the Circadian

eminding that summer is just out of sight

N o further than The Wheel’s revolution

Enter September

Slipping in quietly
On August’s coattails

Clad in last season’s warmth
And bright colour

Flourishing her own touch
A pearlescent wrap

The weft of crisper air
The warp of stored sunshine

Earth twirls like a girl
Showing us her new raiment

A whisper of white embellishment
Introducing our eyes to the latest fashion
In the Collection of Four Seasons
