It’s December.  Though not official yet, the winter months are here.  The sun is low in the horizon.  The light is soft.  Yes, it’s full speed ahead into the holiday season, but the natural world comes alive in the cold beauty of hibernation.

Absolutely one of my favorite places to be is Joshua Tree National Park.  The landscape and quiet is incredible!  Certainly not as well know as Death Valley or Yosemite, but every bit as impressive to explore.

I just happen to love roses.  A few years ago I got a bit crazy with them and planted over 50 around our property.  It’s only half an acre so they kind of take over this time of year.  I haven’t been pruning them too much either so they’re starting to get pretty large within their own range of growth.  It’s pretty amazing to be walking around the yard, not paying too much attention to them when, Wham!  This incredible and intense fragrance wafts up and around.  I just stop and relish in the moment.

I awoke well before dawn in order to take a nice hot shower.  I knew I needed to warm myself before putting on the many layers of clothing I’d need to wander around on the lake shore in the 10 degree cold.  I do love being out there, it’s just the preamble and gathering momentum that is the most difficult.  So, dressed warmly with coffee in hand I drove down the road a ways, parked the car and walked the 10 minutes in the dark down to the lake.  A perfect winter’s day.  Cold, windless, still, quiet.  Now feeling alert and totally awake I almost melted into the landscape, its serenity deeply felt.  Watching and being with the growing light is meditation at its finest.
