The Mosaic

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.

Shapes in the Snow

One of my favorite singers, Jodee James, is, also, a creative and imaginative writer.  She writes on her personal Facebook page about her experiences with nature around her home in the woods with the depth and soul of a Story Teller.  From time to time, I will share some of her posts with you along with one of my photos in this blog.

Too windy to walk in the woods with the trees so brittle, but I got to walk along the stream where the ice hung like glass earrings and bells, or like mismatched puzzle pieces half floating on the water. The woods are so noisy when it's cold and the sky this blue - the branches creaking and slowly moving, wrapping around the fringe of evergreen - I think I can hear the whole forest sounding up over the hill. The air seems that thin. It's definitely a two hat day.”

Snow in the Desert

Advice is like snow - the softer it falls,
 the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper in sinks into the mind.

First Fall of Snow

"The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?"   - J. B. Priestley
