“Patience is to wait for the ice to melt
instead of breaking it.”
“…ice contains no future ,
just the past, sealed away.
As if they’re alive, everything in the world
is sealed up inside, clear and distinct.
Ice can preserve all kinds of things
that way- cleanly, clearly.
That’s the essence of ice,
the role it plays.”
“Snowflakes are one of nature’s
most fragile things,
but just look what they can do
when they stick together.”
Vesta M. Kelly
“Thank goodness for the first snow,
it was a reminder-
-no matter how old you became
and how much you’d seen,
things could still be new
if you were willing to believe
they still mattered.”

Love that Vesta M. Kelly quote. Brr, stay warm!
😉 we’re expecting things to drop to 9F tonight. Brrrr is right! I trust you and yours are warm and hunkered in for the duration. ❤ ❤ ❤
Yes, indeed! 🙂 9 is cold for you (and your poor plants!) Hope all endure!
Thank you for the ‘warm’ thoughts, Eliza 😊 It actually got colder than forecast…. Brrr! I am reading gardening books and moving tender plants away from window sills. I know you enjoy this weather. We hear now more snow is on the way….
Oh, boy, this might be a winter to remember!
Or to try to forget….
