During these bright, chilling January days, we’ve given ourselves to the work of clearing the season’s brush from our fields. In what feels like an appropriate ritual in departing from the past year and into the new, our days center around controlled burns: bright cages of smoke and flame, ensconced in filigreed branches and twigs.
Clearing away the tangled debris of a year defined by tumult, discord, and uncertainty leaves in its wake a palette of frost-kissed earth, fine and silvery, a blank page open to new ink.
