Intelligence With the Earth

Shall I not have intelligence with the earth?
Am I not partly leave and vegetable mold myself?

Henry David Thoreau
19th century

Of Note: If you will look closely, you will see a yellow butterfly partaking of the leaf and vegetable matter for its own purposes. Marie caught this scene in March in Texas, when we still had snow on the ground here in the northwoods.

Today's Weather Report: Yesterday a large storm loomed off to the east but broke up as it approached Lake Superior. That is not an unusual pattern. The big lake has a way of manipulating weather; in fact, many times, it makes its own. Because we are so close to the lake, we are the recipients of both the good and the not-so-good in that regard.
