snow falling on flowers

it's friday, finally, after what's felt like a head-long rush of a week. there just weren't enough days this week, and not enough hours in those days. i don't know what happened to them...it seems i blinked and they went by.

the next few days are so busy i'm looking forward to next tuesday.

this morning brings a welcome moment of calm while improbably, snow falls in big white flakes. improbably, it's sticking in puffy clumps speared by long blades of too-green grass, and blood-red rose petals sprinkled overtop. i'm looking at a three-season tableau - summer, fall and winter all overlain into one bizarre kaleidescope of nature.

i'm sure there's a metaphor in that.

and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.

Well, I'm feeling *fully* embraced by the arms of Nature today. :) It's like a mighty grip ... you know - the kind you want to pull back from, but can't.

And look at that ... a touch of sunshine ...
