And so it begins...


With our first snowfall, my winter begins...although many have already had their firsts and seconds and thirds, not unusual this time of year, we're lucky we haven't had more by now.


So I sit and ponder the days to come, will it be a rough one or a mild one, no one knows for sure...but I still think I'll sacrifice a goat to the 'Gods of Weather' for a mild one. Just kidding, I can't even smash a wretched spidey...GROSS!!!


It won't be here long...this time...so I'll enjoy it's beauty and silence as long as 'snow' sees fit.


A first breath or sigh...
you touch a worried shoulder
with a sweet, white kiss.

Hey Sharon, Happy Sunday...Love your snowy picture...gave me a little shiver, but I do miss snow, at least in theory! In answer to a previous post, I live in Lake County but very near the Volusia County line, so that makes us about 30 minutes west of Daytona Beach. The area we're in is just a wide spot in the road, where the sign says "Welcome to Forest Hills a distinctive Lake Co. community" Yep...they got THAT right. The "locals" call it Lake Mack, and my husband & I have an acre, give or take, on Lake Mack. Be it ever so humble, but Hey!, it's ours. I've lived in several states, but after 34 years, Florida is definitely home! I've never been to Lake Placid...is that where they have all the caladiums?? Talk to you again soon...stay warm! *elaine*

How long does winter last there? Is this a good time to hibernate @ home and do people go on long leave, apart from the Xmas celebrations..I wonder. I am sure my kids would love to experience winter one day. It's been super hot in the morning and heavy thunderstorms in the evening here, and flooding in the East coast due to monsoon..that's the closest to climate change we can experience. We are planning for a trip to the highlands for some cool air but not as cold as your place..ah, the people with warm weather wants the cold and vice versa. Happy week ahead Sharon :D

I don't know why, but that photograph makes me think of the story "The Outcasts of Poker Flats". It's a beautiful shot. Tn'T

I must admit, I find this a very beautiful scene! It seems to encourage deep thoughts and long dreams!

And your poem gleams from a very special corner of the soul!
