    on Dec 19, 2016
    I must had been born a hermit... no, I am an old she-bear buried deep down in her cozy little cave, happily hibernating... I don't want to go out, or get dress. Combing my wild mane is out of the question these days... I've told you.  I'm hibern...

  • Little stories
    on Sep 3, 2016
    The heat of late summer moves over the southern land in relentless waves of heat, and I keep insisting in seeing unobvious signs of a much too early fall all over my little world.   September days have arrived in vaporous mellow skirts and it si...

  • Late Summer Tales
    on Aug 24, 2016
    Ah what I would do to see an owl looking down at our little white cottage from the tall trees in my magical woods, her song drifting in through a quiet window.... dance my soul in thy hope!  Thus far though, I haven't been that lucky yet... but...

    Do you love shawls, or ever wear them?  Shawls, 'estolas', 'mantones' (in Spn.)... I love them all, and wear them all the time, for any occasion, and on every season.  Even, during our hot summer days...  Shawls are one of th...

  • Dreaming of winter on a summer's day
    on Aug 4, 2016
    We are in the midst of summer, days are hot, and trees bend softy beneath the weight of fruits, and maybe... maybe it is because I've been away from our little white cottage for an entire week and I'm missing it, or maybe it is because of all of the...
