In my last post i shared that “Fish Out of Water” would be my next post. It’s not. Sorry it’s taking so long. It’s research intense, plus it is a combo of studies and personal ‘stuff’ that some, perhaps many, will be able to relate to in varying degrees (?). I suspect I’ll be in good company.
Just to let some of you know — I know that you know that I am behind on my replies from a previous post. ;D When thought and time has been put into your comments, I like to put thought and time into my replies. Lately, I’ve also been strapped for time and experiencing an unstable internet connection. Thanks for your patience. ღ
Yesterday I was thinking about Winter, both in the seasonal/climatological sense but metaphorically as well. Later that day I was pleasantly surprised to discover a 2 GB card with several 45 sec video clips and still images I’d taken during an unexpected late winter storm this past year, which turned everything into a winter wonderland within an hour. One particular still that I was especially happy to find was this one taken just off my sister and BIL’s deck in their home where I also currently reside. The image is untouched and a little grainy. If I recall correctly, I took it through the window.
Clouds opened to the sun, the giver of color and bright.
The splendor in those few seconds seized that moment.
I could see little sparkles of pinks, yellows and oranges
peeking through the snowflakes before they became
one with another.
Sparkles of light danced as if they were the scintillations
of faceted diamonds.
Within the gray and frozen, I was reminded of the sublime.
More southern snow from home.
