It was late autumn but still warm enough to walk around Como Lake. The songbirds were gone from the bare trees and the lake itself already had patches of ice. Gaining on the parking lot I slowed when I heard water splashing. Here was a lone robin who found a bit of unfrozen water near the shore and was bathing with abandon. It warmed my heart and I've hung onto this moment throughout our long winter as a dear sign of spring.
