Winter First Moon of the New Year
Here’s a puzzle. Tuesday night is trash night here in Kadlec Estates so I trundled out both the regular trash and the recycling.
The moon, at about 3/4’s full, was there, the lesser lamp, but the greater in aesthetic impact; Orion had risen in the eastern sky, now his usual upright self after his disturbing Southern Hemisphere headstand; and, there, on the western patch of lawn, the portion that abuts the driveway and goes down to the street, were regular bare patches, about 6-8 inches wide, then a much broader band of icy snow, a pattern that repeated several times as the yard slopes up toward the garage.
What could cause such regularity? Baffles me.
Soon I’ll have several more chunks of photographs posted about the cruise at www.ancientoftrails.tumblr.com . Going through them brought back a lot of the trip, its diverse geography, flora and fauna. This trip will take a long time to settle in. My eventual goal is to post my ancientrails entries in tandem with the photographs, but that may not happen for months.
