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.

    Perhaps now we should just keep on with the task at hand and finish building our log home.

    The seed catalogs have already begun to arrive in the mail, even though the new year has not yet dawned and spring is still months away, but as I leaf through the brightly colored pages, I am once again filled with a wonderful feeling of excited anticipation.

    We woke up early the next morning to drive back across the mountains to our creek valley, but before we left, I climbed the stairs of my cousin’s house to lean over the bed and hug his wife and daughter. With the warmth of their sleepy goodbyes, I knew that they would be just fine, wrapped securely by their small town, just as certainly as they snuggled into their warm comforters on a chilly winter morning.

    We may not be able to see or hear our neighbors along the creek valley road, but I certainly know that we have become part of a wonderful new neighborhood.

    From the moment I first opened my eyes this morning until the evening darkness crept in from the east, the sky was a white-washed gray.

    One female is a touch-me-not. She is independent and needs nothing to do with people. She is a sleek and beautiful hunter, patiently waiting for hours at the bottom of a tree until her quarry either loses its balance and falls or unwisely decides to descend. If she leans into us for what appears to be a request for companionship, in a matter of seconds she snaps and reminds us that she really did not mean to ask for attention.

    Yes, indeed, I enjoy brewing wine from the wild edibles that grow along the creek, blackberries, pawpaw and dandelion. I also brew wine from some of the crops that I grow, such as strawberry, watermelon and marigold. And, yes, I do enjoy sitting back in the evening and drinking a glass of homemade wine. I savor the subtle flavors of the creek valley as I sip.

    The outside temperature gauge read 22 degrees, but inside our small cabin it was warm, almost hot. I looked out over the loft railing to the living area below and could see that the sterling fan on top of our little wood stove was still turning, powered by the warmth of the last night’s fire.
