So small a thing ...

Is it so small a thing
To have enjoy'd the sun,
To have lived light in the spring,
To have loved, to have thought, to have done?
-Matthew Arnold (1822 - 1888) "Empedocles on Etna."-


On Boundary Bay wetlands, against a still-wintry sky.


  1. We've seen a few pussy willows here already ... and rock dandelions and pasture buttercups and a butterfly!! All about 2-4 weeks earlier than usual.

  2. The quote is perfect! And the pussywillows are so cute! Ours came out a couple of weeks ago, also several weeks early.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
