Journal - Winter Gift- Snow

Journal - #Sketchwithme - The Gift - Snow

Snow is a rarity where I live, so when it does come - to me, it comes as a gift. Oh, not for the cold, the traffic problems, the closed businesses -- but for the hush it brings to the area - that quietness that engenders a 'coziness" that rain never does. Snow brings its own indoor warmth, a relaxing, an "I don't have to do anything" kind of thing (at least to me), that rain and sun rarely do. It brings a white innocence to the landscape, marking each footprint a mystery, birds on the bird feeder a welcome excitement, and that cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate a delicious luxury.
