it snowed here. it may snow where you are, but here, it doesn't happen all the time. so when it does, its beautiful. funny how when you get used to seeing something all the time, it's not quite as wonderous. It makes me think when i ventured to australia and open fields were beautiful, trees were interesting, small alleyways were mysterious . here, those very same things i may pass by without a second glance. after that visit, i challenged myself to do the same here. often i see clearly how we have uglified this world, that it is nice sometimes to find beauty (or at least some interest) in some of the simplest places.
