Hello All!!

Fav charity of the month – City Wildlife – they need a new home! I took an injured wren there over the weekend and saw two Rock Pigeons kissing like crazy (plus a bit more) – it put me in mind of Valentine’s Day!

On the subject of Love: there are a few tickets left for this romantic opera on 2/26.

And more Love: showing until 2/16.

If you’ve been in Rock Creek Park lately, you’ve likely seen the Snow Drops blooming and Crocus pushing up. Winter-lite (usually called early spring) is upon us and that means February may be our new April, at least in Real Estate Market Time. Please send me your referrals if you know of anyone who is thinking about upsizing, downsizing, relocating or, “…just looking for now”.

Lastly, just wishing for a little:

Snow

Against thin woods, Siberian snow
steadily erases objects from their names,
like weevils in flour rocks crawl under the elms.
There is a place whose year is February.

A red bird on a branch is the one leaf
for acres. Ruffled at where it’s gone,
the Tartar-gold, collapsing canopy
of autumn, it repeats one cry

simply to punctuate oblivion,
a hillock-hopping, crimson cardinal
darting Virginia in disbelief.
The blizzard brushes out its airy

echo back to the original
blankness of paper that must not be marred,
but the bird thrusts itself on, the wings splay
in scary limping through enormous calm,

leaving prints on the page in bird-Cyrillic.
Through whirling syllables it is like the lyric
voice not settled on a style,
or silence in the mind of Mandelstam.

Derek Walcott

Enjoy the events!
Much love,
Sheryl
