The Brook Is Magical Today

We have snow in the yard, heavy now under the intense early spring sun. The gentle wind is warm. The forest is noisy as the sun warms snowy branches and releases heavy snow to the woodland floor.

I walked twice to the brook with only boots, jeans, t-shirt and sweatshirt on.

I captured magic.

Friendship with Sumedha

At some point over ten years ago which is not clear to either of us, I met Sumedha on the Internet. We chatted, talked on the phone, and wrote endless letters on paper. She lived with her family in India and I was living in Minnesota at the time.

Sumedha said, 'The Internet allows us to learn about each other from the inside out.'

I had the pleasure of meeting her yesterday, over ten years since we first communicated.

We had a marvelous time and she even fell in love with the beauty of New Ipswich and my little property.

Perhaps after she earns her teaching degree, she'll return?
