Today is January 3rd, and it is cold almost beyond description. But since I have a degree in English that I seldom use, I will dust it off and share a few adjectives that describe the weather. Let's see: frigid, blustery, numbing, bone-chilling – well, you get the idea. I'm not well-equipped for the cold. Being a flip-flop wearing summer girl, this is a tough time of year for me. I just want to bundle up until it's over! But, I have been working on my attitude. I think of how many people would love just one more day on this earth, one more day to wake up to a new sunshine, and yes, feel the chill of winter on their noses. If today were my last – I don't think I'd complain about the cold.
I find it very difficult anymore to go a day and NOT take a photo. Photography is therapy for me on so many levels. So I ventured as far as my front porch to get a few shots on this beautiful January 3, 2010. As the wind was paralyzing my fingers, I snapped a shot of the sky and sun – so beautiful in every season of the year, and one of my darling Dylan. Dylan, a boy of age eight, seems to be immune to Jack Frost – but that is the nature of boyhood I think – and I will save that for another post. Happy winter.
