“Each of us is an atlas of sorts, already knowing how to navigate some portion of the world, containing innumerable versions of place as experience and desire and fear, as route and landmark and memory.”
— E. B. White, found on Brainpickings.org

The Montreal Urban Sketchers are meeting tomorrow at the Grande Bibliothèque de Montréal and at this very moment they are predicting partly cloudy and the rain finishing for 7:00 am. We can always go outside if the weather is warm, even though they are announcing 9C maximum. Brrrr… we are not used to this as our bones are still in warm weather mode.

One of my favourite pine trees just lies about 500 feet from my house and today even though it was rainy, it was singing. The wind gently lifted its arms and it seemed as though it was looking up to the sky. I do have imagination, I know!

  1. The snow dusted the hills in north central vermont too. Your pine seems to lift its arms to the storm clouds waiting its share of snow.
