yesterday it was snowing when we woke up. big heavy flakes. and then it just kept going all day.
bundled up & with my snow boots (thank goodness for warm boots) I
took a walk. to hear the crunch underfoot. and feel the crisp, cold silence.
the mountains above had disappeared, shrouded in the falling white.
I found some color I'd never noticed before.
wishing this peace in the afternoon had been everywhere, for all.
and then later, I looked out the window and saw what the sunset was doing.
the light was breaking through, hitting the trees, and against the cold, blue-grey clouds it looked like the treetops had turned golden.
