still sitting here dreaming of snow. until then i will live in wonder of all the wintry beauty captured and shared on flickr. never have i felt so in love with images of winter as i do this year. i keep asking myself why that is? i think i can now appreciate winter as cozy, dim light, baked treats, tactile knits, lovely layers, evergreens and great boots, reading, candlelight, mixed with smells of cinnamon, spice, and woodsmoke. don't get me wrong, it is cold and dark too early, my skin is already beginning to crack, but for once i can SEE the beauty beyond all that, and that is good.
