Squirrel Thoughts


One of our neighborhood’s black gray squirrels has so far survived the cold, the owls, foxes, coyotes, traffic AND the red-tail hawks. There’s a lot to worry about if you’re a squirrel.

Yesterday one of his “buddies” was devoured by a red-tail hawk.

I think Frederick Buechner speaks to this when he says,“What’s lost is nothing to what’s found, and all the death that ever was, set next to life, would scarcely fill a cup.”

Thoughts For a New Year


I’m loving some Frederick Buechner today.

“Life is grace. Sleep is forgiveness. The night absolves. Darkness wipes the slate clean, not spotless to be sure, but clean enough for another day’s chalking.”
