Dusting of Snow

A dusting of snow

A dusting of snow reminds me to slow down and absorb the beauty around me.

I am frantically packing for an upcoming teaching trip, shipping out boxes of books and art orders, while battling the first stages of a head cold… and feeling a bit overwhelmed and sorry for myself. However awakening to a shimmering world, I am taking in the soft silence and branches glazed with frosting, celebrating light and shadow and how the rising sun turns white to gold.

Exactly the therapy I needed: spending 10 minutes with nature and my iPhone.
