There will be no postcard-style Christmas snow covering Connecticut this holiday season.
This year my snow shot is from the archives … the day after Christmas 2010.
2011’s photographic holiday cheer is of the indoor sort.
Now, with holiday hype done, it’s time to take a breath and remember what’s really important.
It’s not presents under the tree.
It’s family. It’s friends. It’s good health, or at least the ability to awaken and greet each day with wonder.
This is the wonder that greeted me this morning …
Mother Nature’s gift to me. My gift to you in thanks for reading my words … for letting me into your lives.
I hope you take time to relish your wonders, to truly enjoy the gift of a child’s smile, a friend’s hug, a thoughtful glance from a significant other, a happy memory of a loved one no longer with you, and the beauty of the great outdoors.
It’s these wonders that make life worthwhile.
