Snow in the north
Home again after a whirlwind expedition in the frozen north to my other home. Even though I frequently complain of feeling "cold as death," I truly enjoy snow and winter air. The night sky is breathtaking in the fierce clarity of winter cold--how the stars pierce the heart! The trees are transformed into lumbering white beasts, and the cardinal's bright spark pops against the snowy canvas: nature's haiku.
