This is right out my window just moments ago. Yes, more snow. I have noticed a lot of sighing on my part, lately. Winter is a bit wearisome this year. But it could be worse...like ICE. With all the snow and wind we have been fortunate to never lose power. Yes, my right elbow is a bit tender from all the shoveling...but this too shall pass. Last night I decided to fall in love with winter again so I watched The Snowman by Raymond Briggs on YouTube. My VCR from my sons youth is long gone but with the magic of the internet & electricity I was able to revisit this joy! It reminded me of the beauty and magic of snow and like everything it is only transitory. So if you are in a part of the world where snow is getting you down I recommend your favorite beverage and this 26 minutes of charm & delight. OR maybe you are in a place that longs for snow, then the same prescription!
Also...I want to make it perfectly clear that I love living here in Maine. I, actually, cannot imagine living anywhere else. This poem came to my inbox this morning. I love the expression of choice. I wholeheartedly chose to live here. And last night I chose to fall in love with winter again!
A bit more of snowy loveliness
