    1. You are correct, Jean. We can only do what we can for ourselves and close ones.
      Our 'woodsy areas' are waiting patiently for the first snowfall.

  5. Profound words, indeed, Jim! Somehow on this planet we must find a way to live together with tolerance and respect for those different from ourselves. It won't happen until our minds and hearts change. Have a great Monday!
