When the first snow covers the ground deeply, it is clearly a line crossed. That happened this week, as it often does by mid-November, as well as me crossing the line into my seventh decade. To celebrate both I enjoyed a long walk in the snow up in our beloved Hubbard Park. At one point a large bunch of snow—”bigger than a breadbox,” and those who are 70+ will remember that phrase—landed right on my head. A good reminder, no matter my age, I’m still simply part of the universe!
Newly falling snow is glorious! I know this is not an opinion shared by all but I hope these photographs will remind you to bundle up and give it a try. The world is simpler and certainly quieter in a snowstorm like this one. Cold? “If you are cold, you just aren’t wearing enough clothes!”
