11.23.15 Hello Lovely


“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event.  You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if that is not enchantment then where is it to be found?” J.B. Priestly

Hello Lovely,

And might I say you could not have chosen a better time to fall upon this lately, too-dark place.  Just when it felt as though nothing could be clear or beautiful again, there you were.  Speaking in quiet whispers, falling in lullabies to tuck in the world with white … you never disappoint because wonder travels with you.

Is there truly a heart that does not quicken at the sight of you?  Enchanting the air with sparkles the same way the stars decorate the night sky … you leave no a path unloved, no hill un-glittered.  So beguiling, it stops me in my tracks when I see no tracks in you at all.

So I thank you …

… for hanging on boughs, with a weight that replaces the burdens we carry …

… for encapsulating branches in enamel glazes that click upon themselves, becoming the wind-chimes of winter …

… for creating a space to make the imprints of angels visible …

… for enlivening the awe of children in even the most aged of hearts …

… for coming without fail …

… for simply being simple …

You awaken the hope of the season First Snow, and this was just to let you know –

I love you.
