A RETIRED NEWSWOMAN, I live in a wooded creek-valley in a semi-rural township in Ohio, in a county that borders the south shore of the Great Lake Erie.
Topics and frequency of postings are according to my mood.

The out-of-doors this morning is like an old-fashioned kaleidoscope I recall from childhood. One moment I see bright sunshine and blue skies. Then the clouds move in. Then my valley's green and vivid underneath a spooky sky. The next view is surprising when a blue spot opens in dark sky and tosses blue into my creek... And it goes on... The swiftly changing skies will bring up really interesting views this day, I think!
The stars were spectacular when Big Dog and I walked out-of-doors this morning at 4. It was chilly, and Big Dog did his duty, then hurried back to the warmth of his bed. I took my time with the stars, and I silently thanked my dog for arranging for me to be present at the right time to see such things. Though truthfully at such early hours, when I leave my warm bed to accompany my dog to the cold world outside, I am never sure what I'll see and HOW I'll feel... until I am actually OUT THERE!
