Stubby snowmen and vanishing snow


The snow has almost vanished. A stub of a snowman is left behind, twig arms sticking proudly out. Its nose has been eaten in the night, and one of its eyes has disappeared. A sprinkle of white remains in the hidden dips of the path. Sparkling bright in the sunlight. The hills are greening again, and the sky blue above. It would have been easy, yesterday, to have stayed inside, in the warmth. To have clung to the security, to the knowledge that outside the world was swirling. Seemingly cold and inhospitable in its winter’s dance. I am learning again that the day is there to be grabbed and enjoyed, for it will not return to its current time and space. Tomorrow will be a different world.

Taking time out to ponder life and everything else. This is the space where I press the pause button on my busy life to reconnect with God, to re-energize, and focus on my creativity. Time out to blow bubbles, walk on the beach, write some stuff, do some needlework, and generally enjoy life once again. You can view my main blog at www.iggandfriends.wordpress.com. I also have another blog at www,faithinthehome.wordpress.com, and a arty/crafty one at http://52weeksofcreations.wordpress.com/. I hope you enjoy visiting :)

  2. I love the economy and depth of your posts – the range of humour and philosophy.
    In this one, for me the phrase “winter’s dance” stands out.

    Good luck in every new world you find yourself in πŸ™‚
