    1. Yes, we have! We got 15 inches of snow from Thursday evening to Saturday morning! Oo-wee... Largest snowfall in Feb in history!

      Yes, keeping the sense of wonder and curiosity alive; seeing life as if for the first time everyday... Need practice with that one :)

  3. They seem somehow warmer when named ice prisms rather than icicles. I guess, as you say, the experience is in the perception.

    1. :) ~ I called them that because of the rainbow light that shows through them. Although, when I first spotted them from our house across the street, they were a brilliant gold light, but by the time I got out there to take the picture, the sun had pretty much set - leaving the rainbows in the icicles. And so they reminded me of little prisms :) I thought about calling them frozen tears, but felt that was a little too dramatic :)

  4. Very nice reminder to WAKE UP, Christine! And beautiful image... We had more snow here this weekend. The fireplace is getting a good workout these days. Not much sun or melt for creating icicles here yet. But happy enough to watch the snowflakes fall. Happy Week, my friend ((HUGS))

    1. Yes indeed! Once one has really *seen* it is... :) As you say - "it's not about looking... it IS about seeing..." Love that quote.

  7. Oh these are sparkling prisms to be sure, and the words which accompany them are fine reminders that wonders dwell all around us.
