I love to watch the red-tailed hawks fly across the creek valley. Their light brown bellies glint beautifully in the sun as they fly. Their dark brown wings stretch four feet across, and as they turn and climb higher into the sky, I can see their fan-shaped namesake, red tails. Their scratchy call echoes among the hills and up and down the creek valley.

    It was a warm day, actually an amazingly warm day for the first of March. I felt quite comfortable in a short- sleeved shirt, and I was not even that surprised to see quite a few folks uptown wearing shorts and sandals as I ran my errands.

    A little over a year has passed. The grandchildren have grown. We have planted and harvested crops. The feeder calves seem to have ballooned into full-grown cattle, but sometimes it seems like only yesterday when I sat beside him and held his hand. We talked of so many things.

    The first day of spring is still officially four weeks away, but I must have forgotten to tell my honeybees. The weather has been amazingly warm, and they have broken out of their winter clusters and have taken flight to forage for food.

    We stood back and looked at the leftover wood. “We almost have enough for another house,” Greg said. I thought again of my childhood troll houses, but decided to keep quiet, just for now. We still have our own home to finish, but it certainly occurred to me that it would be fun to build a troll cabin off in the woods. Shh ...

    We have lived in the creek valley for 14 years now. Sometimes it feels as though we have always lived here and it is hard to imagine ever having lived anywhere else, but this morning I felt as though I had just arrived. I was amazed to discover the silver beauty of the frost crystals.

    When we woke up this morning, a light snow was falling, and it continued to fall well past evening. Curiously, though, the snow did not gather on the ground. Its presence was certainly visible, but it looked more like a light dusting of confectioner’s sugar spread out across the fields.

    With certainty I do realize that there are some things I simply cannot change. The winter weather will be what it will be, but I also suppose that I really should get up off the cabin’s front porch and go set a few bee feeders filled with honey out in the orchard. And as for the maples? I will just wait, and watch, and for the moment, enjoy listening to the wind chimes.

    I usually think that I am fairly optimistic, but of late my typically bright outlook on life has been put to the test. The valley’s seemingly endless sea of mud has begun to coat not only our creek world, but my disposition as well.

    Yes, indeed, things do seem to have a way of working out, and I have learned from our creek valley world that life does go wonderfully on.
