the peaceful saturday

nature is amazingly calm in new england this morning and has turned the landscape breathtakingly beautiful. it's hard to imagine that it's created such turmoil on other parts of the earth. through live streams and twitter feeds and facebook messages, the world waits and watches, holding its collective breath, afraid of what nature will do next. sending prayers for chile and safe thoughts and wishes for those in the pacific islands. and giving thanks for the peaceful, safe place in which i find myself today.

I love the quiet that a blanket of snow brings to the world.

Great shot. I grew up in New England winters, migrated to MTL where it can be a little too long. But this shot - this shot reminded me of those early daze when the snow first comes down and you cant help but bask in the beauty of it all.

Winter, viewed from the comfort of my home, is beautiful I always think of that scene in Dr Ziavago.

i just wish it weren't so cold!

Very strange for the weather to be brutal so close to us, and yet so relatively mild here, huh?

DS said...

I have to say I also count my lucky stars since the weather and mother nature in general has been as kind as it has so far this year, to me at least. My heart still goes out to the people in Chile, however, and I wish their country a speedy recovery.

Winter is my favorite, Snow is so clear and pure, thank you for the calming moment.

What a beautiful photo accompanied by beautiful words. There's nothing better than sitting inside by a fire while looking outside at the snow. It does make you feel safe, like the snow offers nature a layer of padding against the harsh realities of winter. Having said that, we don't get a lot of snow where I live here in Vancouver. We could have used some over that last 2 weeks when we hosted the winter olympics!

I think it must have been really cold down there....

If only I was there
