puxatawny phil with some other (less famous) celebs.

it’s his big day, and one of my favorite fun holidays

no matter what he predicts

about the coming of spring

(*not sure about his accuracy)

 i love his spirit. 

 *the national climatic data center compared U.S. national temperatures from 1988 to 2012 to determine the accuracy of Phil’s predictions, and he’s only been proven correct 39% of the time — significantly worse than chance.

unbroken unity.

Standard

nothing like the feel of

walking on a lake of solid ice

remembering how it felt

swimming in its warm water

pure magic

“in the arctic, the inuit say water and land are the same;

they’re an unbroken unity.

in the winter, you travel on the ice because it’s the linkage and the easiest way,

and in the summer, you move around on the water.”

july light.

Standard

“that beautiful season the summer! 

filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; 

and the landscape 

lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”
