Winter Magic


As I look around me, I've been noticing a lovely winter magic here in Tennessee.

I'd like to share some images we've captured which are accompanied by some quotes about winter.

"Snow flurries began to fall and they swirled around people's legs like house cats.  It was magical, this snow globe world."
-Sarah Addison Allen

 "Winter came down to our house one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again."
-Bill Morgan, Jr.

"It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam.  This crisp winter air is full of it."
-John Burroughs

"Winter is a time of gray, velvet winter drifting toward us...Colors are softer, sounds have more depth, the pace is gentler.  Instead of resentment at the lack of sun, snuggle into the gray velvet quilt and make yourself a cup of tea."
-Jennifer Jones

Positive thoughts: "When the snow is still blowing against the window pane in January and February and the wild winds are howling without, what pleasure it is to plan for summer that is to be."-Celia Thaxton
"Always focus on the good, the positive."-Becky Arnott
Thanks for visiting!  Until next Sunday, Becky
