Yes, the snow is pure-looking, invigorating, and somewhat magical. . .yes, the vistas around our house are quaint and charming. . .but we count the days along with many of our neighbors as we await the arrival of spring and the new planting season. . .snow is fun, but heat and warmth and green fields are more fun–jaaaa!!

The snow does send us into reveries regarding existence. . .it is cozy inside with endless cups of coffee and lots of good books to read. . .and it is wonderful to slow down just a bit and appreciate all of the good around us.  There is so much good. . .and just a little less-than-good–yet we keep moving upward and onward while enjoying the passage of time.

So, enjoy whatever weather is happening wherever you are. . .this, too, shall pass.

I send you warm thoughts from the first snow of 2016 here in the rolling hills of Wisconsin. . .feel them. . .they have the power to melt excessive ice build-up.

It’s lovely out there.
