Mysterious mysterioso

22 Jan

For no clear reason aside from poetry and whimsy, this view over my children’s school play fields struck me as: beautiful, cold, neolithic, hopeful, and a bit fairy-magical.

20130121_153232See the dozens of snow figures?  And all the circling tracks as children ran and rolled their creations into being?  Some figures people-like, some like houses, some just … efforts to raise a monument amid a world of winter.  The strange balls in the trees (I’m told they are invasive mistletoe) could be nests, or decorations, or more dreams.  Such a clear sky behind all those clouds, and the snow is turning from white to blue as the sun goes down.

Perhaps the alchemy of the post-solstice Rollright Stones and the frosted walk last week have helped me turn a corner.  I know spring is coming.  I’m trying to love winter just a little bit longer.

    It’s my favorite season, winter. Give me snow or give me death. And it’s, as always, more beautiful through your eyes.

      You are entirely welcome to somehow magic all this snow away for yourself. It is pretty, I admit.

        If I knew how, I would. I’ve been thinking a lot about manifesting the things I want (like first class upgrades, killer trips around England – I only have a few months left, ya know, better living motivation, mushroom soups, and yes SNOW. I guess there is something I still need to figure out. I’ve been smiling more, and sending love to the Universe and pretty much everyone and everything. But you know, it feels a little one-sided lately. Ah well… I soldier on. We were supposed to get a few inches tomorrow night. Now it’s snow/rain mix that may not amount to much of anything. I should live in Buffalo. lol!

        If you figure all this out, please send out smoke signals so the rest of us can learn from you … I feel sure the universe must be sending love back to you. ❤
