snapshots of our snow day
Walkin' in a winter wonderland ....
"The future lies before you, like paths of pure white snow. Be careful how you tread it, for every step will show.”
My attention was caught by a snowflake on my coat-sleeve. It was one of those perfect little pine trees in shape, arranged around a central spangle. This little object, which, with many of its fellows, rested unmelting on my coat, so perfect and beautiful, reminded me that Nature had not lost her pristine vigor, and why should man lose heart?
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)
