Beauty

During the night I put wood in the stove and took a few minutes to gaze out the sun room windows. The snow was shining and the moonlight painted shadows beneath the trees. It was tempting to feel my way to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee or tea in the dark and return to the sun room to watch the still quiet beauty outside.

Snow and fog

Snow and Fog.


In the last part of the night the moon disappeared and fog hid all but the closest parts of nature as the sun tinted the sky. It was beauty cloaked in a warm cloud.

Before we left for work the fog began to dissipate and the snow turned brilliant white under a blue sky.

I had to work today so there wasn't time to play. Friday begins eighteen days off work. Hopefully there will be another snow, another sunny morning and time to walk and explore the beauty.

I guess I have to go there for snow. None here yet -- or at least none that has lingered. It's an El Nino year, so we may not have a white Christmas.

Peaceful. Must take a few minutes to hold this tranquil silence your post has brought. Thank you.
