Let it Snow Tuesday, February 12, 2008

Today was like living in a snow globe.

It snowed and blew all day. Looking around with all of that sparkle of reflecting light, the million little crystals of ice swirling about, was just gorgeous. It made me think of the movie White Christmas, a classic in my home. It also made me wonder about how far one would have to walk, metaphorically, to hit those glass walls separating out the real world.

Similarly, sharp, reflective little ideas swirled around all day in my head. I did try to keep concentrated, there are more midterms at work, but a glint of reflected light would bring them all back into focus. Blizzards, frozen flakes of ideas, blustering about. How far to get to the dome of the snow globe? To the rounded glass wall? Perhaps that would give some better perspective.

I apologize for yesterday’s post being so fragmented, and not really following good sentence structure. But having reread, I do think the format gets the message and the emotion across.

Still, just a moment with eyes open to the world and not to things said from across it, there is a good deal of wonder to be had with that perfect little compartment of floating flakes, swirling about in the wind.

Though it may not be quite in season, in the words of Bing Crosby, “The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, and since we’ve no place to go, let it snow…”
