“Let us love winter

for it is the

Spring of genius”

Pietro Aretino

 

“Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness.”
-Mary Oliver

“No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place”

-Zen Koan

Whitefish at Night – A Gallery of Photos

Living in the woods, our little town proves itself a nearby haven of good food, community, gatherings, parades, celebrations, galleries, farmer’s markets, the Depot, and even night life!  It is a sweet, rustic, western, town that provides a warm, lively, hub of activity for locals and visitors alike.  For me, the simple life is tremendously enhanced by this small town, so full of unique personality.

A few black and white photographs of Whitefish at night are in the gallery below (slideshow will load below).

“In the great cities we see so little of the world, we drift into our minority. In the little towns and villages there are no minorities; people are not numerous enough. You must see the world there, perforce. Every man is himself a class; every hour carries its new challenge. When you pass the inn at the end of the village you leave your favourite whimsy behind you; for you will meet no one who can share it. We listen to eloquent speaking, read books and write them, settle all the affairs of the universe…..
W.B. Yeats, The Celtic Twilight: Faerie and Folklore

 

Whitefish Train Depot – A Gallery of Photos

Trains, train depots, and train travel speak to me of slowing down, of Depot, View of Tracks, Train & Mountainthe journey being the destination, of savoring long conversations and of the gentle unfolding of time.   Adventure, travel, new experiences – all good things!  There is time on a train trip to absorb the beauty as it passes by.

My cross country train trip was a quiet and reflective journey and I’m looking forward to more train travel.  In the meantime I love going to our Whitefish Train Depot to feel the energy of adventure and anticipation, and to get some photos…Track Side Depot, Twilight

“Where you’re sure to live twice as long, and see twice as many things, and be two times as happy at the end. Where snow is more wonderful than rain, than anything.”
