Let It Snow
"No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place." -- Zen saying
This morning was one of those magic winter mornings when God is present everywhere you look. It started snowing Tuesday night and has snowed off and on since. Maybe about 5 inches. This morning the temperature was 19 degrees when I went for my walk. The snow was extremely fine but there was so much of it that I could barely see the shore across from me. There was next to no wind. The flakes just floated around me. All the trees were outlined in snow. The plow had not been on the road yet so I was walking in virgin snow. Near the end of my walk the snow changed to those big, fluffy flakes that mesmerise me and lift me out of myself into the Beauty.
