Around here SNOW is not a four letter work that gets kicked to the side of the road and cussed at.
SNOW to Telluriders (or anyone visiting for that matter) is the best possible thing that can happen to us, a ski resort town.
In other areas of the world snow is a hinderance. Pesty. Somthin to be scraped at with shovels, snow blowers lots of mean words. Sure we gotta do snow removal here ~ but we pray for it to grace our high altitude peaks as often as possible during ski season.
Now we might have a different attitude come May, we are ready for spring then…
But for now….LET IT SNOW!
If you don’t want snow in your neck of the woods. Please send it to us.
Branches thick with frosting. Heaps of snow that cover our ground with sparkles of delight.
Powder that allows us to swoosh down ski slopes….wearing a tutu. Of course.
What is it about fresh snow that invigorates and wakes me up? I want to burrow in and out of it all at once.
I drop to do snow angels…
Angels cool my fire that burns bright. It is a good fire sometimes and other times it gets in the way of me.
Times when my fire takes over are not my favorite. When balance gets thrown off I know it is time to escape my over active mind and cool down.
I ski. Walk. Do yoga. Take pictures. Anything to release the pressure. I reach out to others. How can I be of service?
Gotta take me outta my own mind….
The snow is good for people like me. Steamy hot weather, not so much.
I live in the mountains for many, many reasons. This crystalline covering from the heavens is a big reason why.
Everything seems to look better with the white blanket on…
Perfectly frosted aspens and pines line paths, they guide. They look, watch and listen.
The blanket holds so much mystery below…
Things to be revealed when it all melts.
For now I will stick with this cozy white blanket of pure white delight.
And not wonder too much…
