Photo Wednesday 27: snow angels

We spent a couple of days last week in New Hampshire.  Our dearest friends generously let us stay in their house for two nights.  It snowed heavily the second night.  On the third day I went for a walk by myself in the new, deep snow.  In one secluded bower of trees I fell to my knees and, overcome with something I can’t name, bowed my head.  And then I looked up, all around, absorbing the beauty of this undisturbed corner of the world, that was mine alone to see covered with fresh snow.  And then, as I trudged back to the house, I stopped to make a snow angel.

  1. I love that you allowed yourself to PLAY! How nourishing to the soul–the whole experience. I’m waiting for our own midwestern snow fall to collect and pile up!

  2. How beautiful…I have had some serene moments in the snow this week as well, but haven’t quite done what you did. The next snowfall I’m in for an angel!
