|'Only that day dawns to which we are awake' Thoreau, Walden|
I want to stay home with a cup of tea and just sit by the front window and watch the snow cascade down the pine branches like little avalanches. My job awaits, though, and I settle for what I know will be a beautiful drive into work. As always, I am enthralled by this brief encounter with nature, knowing the day will bring changes and what I see now will not be there later. I am a little sad that my responsibilities keep me from enjoying it to fullness.
