Just one more thing, Mother Nature: If you think I was being a little harsh in my last post, I want to respectfully remind you of the wonderful show you put on for me just three weeks ago.

  1. This is an amazing image to offer today, winter’s eve. The transition from autumn (harvest) to winter (slumber), the longest night (times of darkness, depleting harvest, freezing cold) begins a moving towards the spring’s light…(hope, renewal)

  2. Mother Nature is entirely indifferent, and that’s something I’m eternally grateful for. It feels healthy and right, being ignored in such a big way. This is lovely, the way the drama is clearly approaching, but by bit. There is that suspenseful feeling one gets when watching big weather happening.

  3. With hawvin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve eitheer written myself or outsourced but it appears a
    lot oof it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know
    any methods to help protect against content from
    being rippped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    • Thank you for asking. No, I’ve never had this happen. The photograph files are too low-resolution to be much good to anybody and for the most part, what I have written is meaningless without the photograph. I do have a strongly written copyright notice, but I’ve never seen that kind of thing deter anyone from stealing. I’ve seen pages written as graphic files so that you can’t copy and paste, but that would not prevent someone from just manually re-typing it. I wish I could be better help. Good luck. By the way, how did you find me? And you certainly have made me curious to see some of your recipes! Which I will not steal!
