Wild Berries

I think blueberries on the tundra are the most beautiful thing in the world. I’ve not been writing lately; fall is such a busy time of year.

A Sign of Spring

What signs of spring do you see out your window? Daffodils or crocuses? Do you live in the southern hemisphere – and if so, what is your fall like right now?

She looked very different; I didn’t take pictures of her … More Anaanannguara
