GIVING THE SEASON ITS DUE...


For me, there's something very special about the early snows in our northeast Ohio.
I admit, as years go by and I grow older, the cold feels colder against my thinning skin; my outdoor forays do not last as long; and I no longer do my own snow-shoveling.
Still, the captive child that exists within me looks with great excitement as the first snowflakes begin to fall each year around me.
I am one determined to continue giving every season its due; to ignore discomforts and appreciate the unique beauties; and when it comes to winter, I would not want it without snow.
And oh! have you walked outside in snow before the dawn, underneath the brilliance of the stars in winter skies?
They seem so large and close... You feel they have somehow drawn you up, to walk among them...

TODAY! THE FIRST SIGNIFICANT SNOW OF THE SEASON, AND MORE TO COME!

AH THE SNOW! IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE CHRISTMAS!
DO YOU THINK, ON A NIGHT WHEN NO ONE IS LOOKING, SANTA WOULD ENJOY RELAXING ON NORTH POLAR-STYLE DECK? 

MY YEAR-ROUND CHRISTMAS TREES ARE "BLOOMING"

PEACE IN THE VALLEY ON THIS SUNDAY MORNING...



CHANGE IN TEMPERATURES LAST NIGHT, AND BLUE MIST ROSE UP FROM THE CREEK IN THE MORNING
