Kuma d.o.g. and I hiked to the cabin in the dark through wind and snow. It was rewarding to get behind the door and into the peace and silence of its walls. After lighting some oil lamps, and a fire in the fire place, I wound up the radio and tuned in some blues. Sitting by the fire, a glass of merlot in my hand and my dog at my side made for a relaxing evening. If it gets better than this, I haven't experienced it.
