Having moved out to a rural area leaving the frantic pace of large cities in the dust, nothing made me happier than purchasing my new home near the Minnesota River. Covid changed my Alaska plans. Covid changed my life plans. I decided that you must find your joy and not wait for it to knock on your doorstep. Even as early as mid-summer, I long awaited winter's touch - snow, sub-zero temps, frost and mist off a river. All the conditions were perfect on this crisp wintry morning. Eagles calling out piercing the crystal blue sky and a dreamy location with an untouchable quiet. Words? Serenity, beauty, breathtaking, dreamy, heaven.
