It was less than a week ago when we got hit with more snow…can you believe almost 2 feet of it?! And to think, I thought Winter was well on its way out. Here’s a look at what I hope was the last licks of Winter…
…knocking on our front door…
…and sugar coating our side bushes and garden.
Here’s Brook and Mac having some fun in it.
And here’s Bill doing some front walk clean-up (I helped too, but gave up early so that I could take some photos).
It only took us about an hour to shovel…and just in time too, as the sun was on its way down. But before it went away for the evening it left this gorgeous glow of light (seen from our back deck). It seems to me that this orange-red streak is somewhat like a silver lining…a gift from Mother Nature at the end of a snow filled day. Doesn’t this look like a whisper of promise?
And the promise was answered in the form of much sunshine in the days following, as you can see below there was beautiful, bright blue sky (photo taken during our overnight visit to the Hudson Valley).
It’s amazing to me how after just a couple of hours under the soothing sunshine I could feel my spirit lifting. And all seems lighter and easier…and calmer in general. And when I’m feeling calmer, I can sense that there’s creative inspiration on the other side…knocking at the door to be let in. I welcome this with wide open arms and a ready heart. It’s time to let it flow again.
