Let it Snow!

February 1, 2019

 

 “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

 - Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

 

I feel so peaceful and content when the snow falls.  Even the other day when I was in the "city", 90 minutes from home, and snow started falling and quickly accumulating and I started thinking of slippery highways and mountain passes, I found a calm reassurance that Mother Nature knew what she was doing.  I carefully drove home but delighted in the clean, soft white all around me.   And I was disappointed as I got closer to home that the skies cleared and there was no new snow.

 

The snow wraps our environment in quiet and clean white.  I can imagine, as Lewis Carroll says, that the snow is a quilt and all below is protected, snug and sleepy.  When it's cold, that "quilt" of snow sparkles, like nature's glitter, in the sunshine and the moonlight,  celebrating winter.

 

I hope you find a way to celebrate winter and its gentle kisses!
