Today’s weather is back to the normal of recent past winters, snow to sleet to freezing rain to rain. In concise meteorological terms ” A Shit Storm!” I despite my “love” for this season and all the metaphors it congers up have been enjoying the fresh powder of recent storms. Even out with the picture box capturing some beauty.
But it is the light that I love the silhouettes of trees abstracted against foreboding skies, the harsh cold of the bare trees. Soon the buds will peak out and youth will replace the aged bark of the oak with the smooth soft skin of the tulip. The maples will start to drip their sap with the promise of sweetness to follow. Fleece will be replaced by flesh, the smell of wet wool magically transformed to an amorous aroma of wildflowers mingling with cocoa butter as plants and animals leap into the fertile dance of spring. Change is coming to planet earth and my place in the cyber world.
For now that’s all I’ll say watch look comment, contribute, communicate, tell a friend.
enjoy the winter light look forward to the replenishing season spring pjc

It’s been almost 20 years since I’ve experienced Winter. Here in the desert southwest, Winter is our relief. Spring is just a reminder of the scroching days that will soon send us indoors.
