|Walking in the snow (1)|
Sometimes we make cookies, or huge pots of fresh popcorn drizzled with melted butter and a dash of salt. We read together. We're about to start The Hobbit today, in preparation for seeing the movies. Adventure and hardship awaits us in the pages, along with Second Breakfast and Tea, trolls, wizards, halflings and elves. No television show can compete with that kind of story, nor should it. We need to take this time to cultivate imaginations!

Days like this, when snow is falling heavily outside and the inside is all warm and full of life, always seem more quiet. I have patience for introspection and meditation. I find myself pulling out my needlework and enjoying a cup of tea. Instrumental music thrums from my smartphone, filling the air around me with the tones of Buddhist chanting or Franciscan monks singing in Latin. I find the calm within me, and I touch my center so much more readily than on other days.
What does a snow day bring for you? Is it a thing of beauty and quietude for you?
