[2] Sunday


It has been snowing a lot lately. The sun came out briefly yesterday but it is snowing again today. I woke up to the flurry flakes gently settling on my window pane. I stayed in bed for the longest time watching them so peacefully covering everything outside. You know, these snowflakes, they don't discriminate. They touch anything and everything with their tenderness. It makes me long for an embrace, a gentle caress and a morning smile.

This is a photo of the view from my window. I couldn't catch all the snowflakes, but you can see some. It is beautiful.

Today is a perfect day for day dreaming, curling up with a cup of coffee, and watching life pass by me. Have you noticed that snow is nature's only phenomenon which in addition to being extremely beautiful actually forces you to stop and look at it? It is all around you and comes in your way so you have to acknowledge it. In a way, snow is nature's way of letting you know that you should give yourself a break, that you deserve a break and the beauty in life no matter how many times you are dumped and rejected and felt like you were no-good. There are signs all around for those who are willing to see.

[I posted more photos of the snowfall during the past week on I Romanticize ]

  4. Yes Raaajiii,..snow is a soft and smooth to touched,..but if it is compressed hard, and if its stayed longer in one place it becomes a hard object that even your car couldn't go around due to frictionless in nature...although snow is a headaches in the road way, I still love to play and laydown my body around the area where there are lots of snow...love to see your nice pics. friend Raaajiii

    honestly, I'd take snow over heat any day :P


    @ Windel

    You are right. It can be a pain in the butt but whenever it is, I remind myself that I need to be patient, and taking things a little slowly once in a while wouldn't hurt :-).

    Glad to know you enjoy the snow too!

  11. Beautiful picture!
    I love your last line, the Quranic verses spring to mind where God keeps reminding mankind that there are signs scattered everywhere for people who understand.
    You write wonderfully :)

  14. The pic is beautiful. I personally hate the cold, but I'd love to be frolicking in the snow sometimes :). I like your philosophy that snow is asking you to take a break and soak in the beauty for a change.

  18. I also like to talk with the others nature's children as birds, dogs, the wind, the sun, the moon, the stars. If had snowflakes here obviously I would love to have a chat with them too. Even with my cup of coffe I like to talk when I'm incredible lonely, you need to try it in one of these days :D

    I like to talk with all of them because, well, somedays they are the only ones able to hear me and give some good advice, as the snowflakes to you! :P
