Not too much snow around this Christmas.  Enough to let those in the family who are not regularly around snow enjoy its unique beauty.  It's snowing again this weekend, all weekend.  The lightly falling flakes, relative warmth, soft air and ethereal light are so invigorating.  I can't stop admiring the view. 

Last night was our first skiing of the season.  It felt smooth and easy.  The lights on the mountain, the snowfall, light fog off the snow, created such a glowing effect.  It was like skiing in a star.  Yes, I fell.  On the last run of a quick, "warm up" trip.  Hyperextended my knee and am hobbling now. But no serious injury. 

Some more of the family went home yesterday and there is no more child laughter and energy....  Still, all is well and the new year seems bright with promise, and I wonder how you all are doing.

  6. Sounds wonderful. There is something about being held in the stillness that is winter.

  7. Now it's late January, and after two days of snow, our city was mostly shut down. After four days of clearing the mess, most things will be working tomorrow.
    As we live on the edge of the city, near what was once a Tuberculosis Sanatorium (and now a park), we can experience some of the peacefulness of winter that you mentioned. Sadie (our Poodle) and I walk there most days. When it is snowing, it is so quiet, and light, and calm (unless there's a wicked wind).
