• • • HellloOO!  I feel like this is the first time I’ve been on this site for weeks, I’ve been in a bit of a daze.  No, not a daze ~ a BOG.  I had no idea that whole seasonal depression thing was real until just a few days ago, when I realized the past three Januarys have been horrid for me.  And while I adore winter, it’s the lack of sunlight which seems to bore through my soul ~ slowly, unnoticed, over weeks and months ~ and come January I crumble.

But yesterday, the sun rose on full blast and gloried across the sky, pulsing bright and hot ~ so hot, that after milking Daisy I took a decadent milk bath and sunbathed nude for four hours while catching up on paperwork.  (It was probably 45ºF, for those wondering. But in the middle of a Wyoming winter, 45º is a reason to get naked.) Gotta maximize the Vit. D intake when you can!  And today I’m happy.

The photo above, however, is from when winter was still 100% romance.  The first snow is as magical and divine as the first reemergence of the sun’s heat was for me yesterday, and as will be the first butterflies and lilac blooms in Spring, the kneehigh pasture grass in Summer, the first fire in my woodstove in Fall.  And then the first snow………….

Y’all know the drill ~ leave your title or caption for the photo above in the comment section of this post and, since I’ve been waxing on about the seasons, this winning caption will get a 2010 Charlie calendar! (see it HERE!)

    Shreve, I’ll also chime in about the benefits of D supplements for SAD. I started taking D3 in October for bone health, but I have also noticed that I am doing much better emotionally this winter. I didn’t come unglued right before Christmas as I used to do. My yoga instructor suggested that may have been a result of the D3. Love to you and the critters.

Ultimately, I never overcame the externals until I addressed the internal, and God has been gracious in healing and changing me from the inside out. I enjoy the tales of your farmily, and LOVED your Vespa pictures. :-)

The one I have is a floor-lamp model from BlueMax; it makes a great task/reading light as well, and you can use it while doing something else instead of having to purposely sit in front of a glowing box for half an hour.

  159. pam Says:

    Shreve, I am sorry that you deleted whatever ignorant remark was made by “a woman” as I just returned from work and missed the controversy. I can only surmise that she objected to your nudity comment and wanted to say to her myself that I also enjoy walking around my home in the nude whenever I am alone and am able to with the window blinds open and I don’t care who knows it or sees it. I love the warm sun on my body and the freedom from clothing! there is nothing wrong with basking and pampering ourselves as we women hardly get a chance to do that, taking care of family, work, etc.
    So, to “a woman”, I feel very sorry for you if you blasted Shreve for her comment! I myself am now going to disrobe from my “work clothes” , take a hot bubble bath and walk around naked until I have to make dinner!

    All swallowed in their coats
    With scarves of red tied ’round their throats
    To keep their little heads
    From fallin’ in the snow
    And I turned ’round and there you go
    And, Michael, you would fall
    And turn the white snow red as strawberries
    In the summertime…

    But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
    Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
    ‘Tis I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow
    Oh Charlie boy, oh Charlie boy, I love you so.

    “The Sound of Silence”

    because I LOVE that song, and because the first steady, quiet snowfall always makes me think that, if silence could have a sound, that’s what it would be.

    A poem by Robert Frost came to mind called “Dust of Snow”

    The way a crow
    Shook down on me
    The dust of snow
    From a hemlock tree

    Has given my heart
    A change of mood
    And saved some part
    Of a day I had rued.

    So I’d suggest “Dust of Snow”. It’s moments like this, when I spot winter beauty, that gets me through my seasonal depression.

    I just read your book and am fascinated with Charlie. I have always really liked Coyotes, Wolves, Foxes; any canine has my adoration. I sometimes see coyotes and foxes around my home in Mississippi but never thought to raise one, though I have always felt strongly that they should be allowed to live their lives as God intended. I really enjoyed reading how intelligent they are (when Charlie climbed the stairs to the loft) and of course learning his commands. Hats off to you, Charlie and The Daily Coyote! I guess I’m your newest fan!

    Oh, by the way, I just finished reading the last pages of ‘The Daily Coyote.’ It was an amazing book! People really do underestimate how magical Coyotes are- they’re always shocked to learn that Coyotes are my favorite animals. We always just think of them as raw, unthinking predators… Nobody really got the reasons why I love them so- and now I have Charlie as proof. They are so amazingly intelligent and mischievous- being beautiful is an added bonus =]
    I can’t get enough of Chloe and Charlie. Thank you for sharing their everyday stories with us, even though some may just be a photo of them on the look-out or playing in the tall grass. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Dear Shreve,

    I am enjoying your book very much – you are a great writer and photographer. I hope you write more. Congratulations on following your instincts, breaking from the norm and doing what you love in a place that you love.

    Dear Shreve,

    I read your comments above with amusement about 45 degrees feeling warm in Wyoming. I also live in Wyoming, a bit farther south, well, all the way south and I relate to 45 degrees feeling like a heat wave! People were coming out from the cold temps without coats, in short sleeved shirts and shorts even!

    Sounds like a good day for a soak in the sun. :0)

    Thanks for the site. I enjoy catching up every few weeks!

    Susan

    I really loved your book with its magnificent photos. Are you planning to write a sequel? I particularly liked the Salman Rushdie quote at the end. I think there are a lot of us free spirits out there…. If I were younger, I’d want to join the “commune.”

    HI! I just wanted to let you know that I too read your book and ILOVEDIT! You are doing what I would love to do and should have done in my younger years. I traveled cross country twice and it was the time of my life! I lived in utah for a couple of years and had some good experiences there. I admire you for many reasons ,one is that you have not allowed fear to prevent you from following your heart. You have gone out and found what I call sugar mountain! God bless you and charlie and the rest of the gang!
