“Blow, blow, thou winter wind,
Thou art not so unkind
As man’s ingratitude;”
Blow, blow the winter wind did today.
We have nothing but humble gratitude when holding a warm egg early in the morning, just being laid.

“To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.”
During the darkest days close to Winter Solstice, we are putting our new birds to sleep in the caravans, and we can definitely confirm that the dark ‘sings’ and ‘is traveled by feathers and feet’ 😊

One of our younger Maremmas, enjoying some play time on the first day of Winter, June 1st.
The importance of play, of approaching each moment as a new thing, full of possibility, discovery and beauty.
The freedom to play all day for chickens, Maremmas and – sometimes – farmers 😊
If this is what winter will be like this year, please bring it on!
