New Years Day Hike 2023

“The gale was at its peak when I turned for home.  In the bare woods of winter, a wind roaring through the treetops sets a whole world in motion.  The incessant stir of thousands of tree limbs, millions of branches, squeaking, rustling, whining, one against the other, creates a sound unnoticed at first, but gradually working its way into the consciousness of the solitary walker.  It is, with the slightest touch of imagination, the sound of music: a distant chorus of many voices, rising, then dipping, with the moan of the wind.  It is an eerie sound, and I first heard it heading home in Hither Woods that day.
