Doe In The Spring Greens ...

who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief …
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”

                              ~ Wendell Berry
                                  ~ born 1934

Doe In The Spring Snow ...




"Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart ...
Live free and beauty surrounds you ...
Stay free, where no walls divide you ...
Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living
'Cause you're born free."
                               ~ "Born Free"
                                  ~title song of the 1966 film
                              ~Music by John Barry, Lyrics by Don Black  

Beautiful and free white-tailed deer doe 
steps spritely through the spring snow in the park
as the grass peeks through what remains of winter
during a March sunset.
