news from the winter birds

I invited my birds to share along in today's post.
 December's bare branches don't offer much cover for winter birds. Their new visibility seems strikingly similar to how I feel suddenly... balancing out on a limb for all to see. So far, it's not so scary! Thanks to all of you! Your warm and happy response to my book news has had me dancing for days.
Last week I quietly slipped my newly hatched offering into the sidebar: maya*mail. A big thank you to everyone who has already signed up! I'm so excited to be finding fresh ways to stretch my wings. Here's the plan- each month I'll be sending out a letter written especially for you. Because I live closely with the seasons, I'll be tapping into the natural rhythm of the year for inspiration with either a recipe, tutorial or a personal story. To ensure that you don't miss anything fun and exciting on my blog, I'll always add anything noteworthy... but the main focus will be a sharing that's just for my maya*mail folks. If  this sounds like something you'd enjoy, than simply sign up below ( the invitation will always remain at the top of my sidebar).

One more little bit of bird news...
 Yes, it's true. You can now find me on facebook, too. As many of my friends know, I have resisted for years. It seemed like just another thing to keep track of. Truth is, I'm getting fairly good at managing all of my online nests, and I'm sure I can handle one more. Especially with so many familiar faces stopping by with warm welcomes and... even a few taking me under their wing as I learn the ropes. Find me right here. Pin It


  1. I totally admire how much you are able to handle! I too resist Facebook so please don't be offended if you don't see me there...not yet anyways! With now even more of your monthly inspiration, who knows what I'll be taking on in the New Year?!

  5. I can't tell you how excited I am that you have mail and you are on FB! I absolutely LOVE your site but sometimes forget to check my feed and see what you are up to! I was SO excited that now I know when you have a new post that I will just know about it! Thank you SO much as your blog is a favorite of mine!
