Winter..Here on Earth..


“When the cold comes it arrives in sheets of sleet and ice. In December, the wind wraps itself around bare trees and twists in between husbands and wives asleep in their beds. It shakes the shingles from the roofs and sifts through cracks in the plaster. The only green things left are the holly bushes and the old boxwood hedges in the village, and these are often painted white with snow. Chipmunks and weasels come to nest in basements and barns; owls find their way into attics. At night,the dark is blue and bluer still, as sapphire of night.”

 ― Alice Hoffman, Here on Earth

We too had snow last night dearest....I woke up to a bright light shining in my room, and it was the appearance of snow. Even in the darkest hours, there is a light that shines, that of purity and the freezing over of what we know. Yes, be safe my zuster, and enjoy it from inside! I must now drive to work...
