HAPPPY FIRST DAY OF WINTER

"On the first day of winter
the earth awakens to the cold touch of it self.
Snow knows no other recourse except
this falling, this sudden letting go
over the small gnomed bushes, all the
emptying trees, snow puts beauty back
into the withered and malnourished,
into the death-wish of nature and the
deliberate way winter insists on nothing
less than deference. Waiting all its life,
snow says, "Let me cover you."

I love that the snow says, "Let me cover you." I do feel that way about it. It slows the world down and makes you stay in one place. It's a quiet blanket that covers you with Winter.

Snow is covering everything! But, the day is beautiful. It is cold, but the sun is shining. Makes all the difference in how cold it feels and in our attitudes.

Winter has been here, regardless of the dates. We, unfortunately, can have snow clear into June.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
