Darkness accompanied me as I trod downstairs to make my daily latte. A bit later, I climbed the day-lit stairs, and I was awestruck by the view created by last night’s snowfall.  I marveled at myself because I thought I was tired of looking at snow. Yet there I was– captured by the beauty outside my windows. Enchanted, I savored the subtle coloring of the sky and the snow flocked forest.

Writing now, it’s all gone.  The ‘warm’ mid 30’s day has melted it. So fleeting. Yet I realize it’s all fleeting. Moment to moment, day to day, our landscape changes, not always as dramatically, but still changing never-the-less. That’s why it’s so important to look.
