I’m not ready for the snow. I’m trying to prepare myself with thoughts of white trees and grass, and picnics in the snow. I’ve never had a picnic in the winter and I don’t know if I want to have one.
When the snow covers the earth, I like the quiet that envelopes everything. Before the cars and people come out, you can feel the quiet. No birds or sounds, just total quiet. And a whiteness like a clean blanket thrown over your little spot in the world. I could look forward to this.
When everything is quiet, you could hear yourself think. Feel yourself calm down. A reprieve from the hustle of everyday life. I guess we all could use the time to recharge our inner batteries.
So enjoy the snow and its special gift to you.
