Two of my favorite beings.

We fast approach the Solstice and an end to this very terrible terrible year. 

“To Know the Dark"

To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.”

                         -Wendell Berry

We are still working away but almost half-way there. Maybe Eden will still be here for Christmas. Last night we had Korean pancakes-fermented rice, beans and kimchee. Sooooo delicious. And cauliflower mushrooms. A friend of hers brought us homemade kim chee. I will go back to my tiny menu of steamed veggies and grains and oatmeal after she leaves. 

It's raining and cold here so=muddy dog. He gets so much attention and kisses from Eden. We hosted a neighbor's puppy yesterday for a few hours. She sat on Eden's lap the whole time. It's so dear to see my child be so tender to animals. 

Sweet girls.
