The first snow... this morning in my little town!
How lovely to wake up to a crispy white morning ..
Take a deep breath..
Tiger, the pussy-cat, doesn't know what to think of it..
She carefully steps outside, then turns her head around and looks at me, looks back at this strange world again, then shakes her paws and takes a running spurt back into the house, and I laugh..

"How full of the creative genius is the air in which these are generated!
I should hardly admire more if real stars fell and lodged on my coat."
* * *
The best snow crystals fall during cold, quiet, light snowfalls, and occasionally you can find some real stunning specimens. Each snowfall has its own character, and each brings its own kind of snowflakes..
Take a look at their beauty.

I wanne go outdoors now..
Heh heh. First snow here yesterday, cat tried the "sniff test" three times, running back in, and the third time I threw her out a ways and she took off happily. For her, this is the first snow underfoot.
She's been hunting lately, leaving offerings on the stoop.
She moves to the lake with S and A soon... no traffic. We will miss her.
Cold here. The deep sleep begins...
Ah snow and crystals....
we had really nice and warm stuff here
although they say its to get colder now
now ... Now is approx morning Novem 25 2005
ah it Friday aye? thank G its Friday?
ah maybe.... why? thank G for time?
why? time is all we've got ? for a while?
whatever... but back to the topic
fleeting beauty.... yes beauty is fleeting
the desire to hold on to beauty is proportional
to the appreciation of it...
and some appreciate beauty not or differently
although there is beauty and ugliness together
in most things hard to find beauty sometimes
and when found yes it is often fleeting
hard to find the beauty in ugliness as well
yet in togetherness is their worth
without ugly would there be beauty and without
beauty would there be ugly....
oh.... this is not poetic....
this is anaylsis or overanalysis....
this is trying to finding some underlying meaning or
understanding when all it began as was
the "appreciation" and thanks for a "drop" of beauty
from the heavens.....
why question the gift.....
ah I have lived to long perhaps....
have forgotten how to be simple.....
how to find meaning in the simple appreciation of all
I have an interesting place.... and now ....
well now is alright....
the fridge hummminng away..... the birds having
their porridge.... hee hee
the radio and tv off.....
the sounds of silence from the street
the sounds of a city waking and the sun
streaching to the horizon.....
and wondering perhaps what this day holds
or what I choose or wish "to make" of this day....
a day that on the surface seems like so many other days
yet snow has fallen in holland and cats are playing
and cats and snow is falling in the USA and cats are
playing and its dark and cold in alberta but the place is
warm and dark....
Is there beauty here in this silence?.....
I suppose the continuum of life....
the continuum of now......
thankyou you rhea for the crystal
and you have gone out to "experience" and here I experience
it as well so thanks for sharing your beauty with me here
in this silent darkness.....
I can only imagine it though... or?
Blessed are We and They
That serve Love and Truth
Most of the time.

We got our first snow of the season yesterday too. Woke up to it on the ground.A little surprise for us all. I'd welcome it more if it was a Christmas surprise, but I'll take it nonetheless. Gives everything a nice clean look, and covers up any leaf raking that not quite done ;)
