Welcome to my domain...if you dare...

Welcome to my blog about life as a writer and the craziness it involves with struggles of daily life. Make yourself at home but only if you don't mind a little messiness from time to time. This isn't the Home and Garden blog or Martha Stewart so don't expect cute little crafts with homemade goodies. That's not happening in the world of vamps, weres, and other things that go bump in the night...well...maybe homemade blood cakes topped with 'scream a la cream' sweetness along with the sexy alpha males who serve it up.

Thoughtful Thursday...Snow Pleasures...While You Can

Midnight snowfall
I don't know about you but when I think about all the beautiful snowfalls we've experienced lately, I can't help but think about purity, rebirth, or a new awakening.  Sure there's freezing temperatures along with it but the earth welcomes the change as if saying, 'Yeah, I'm dirty and I need a good scrubbing.'

There seems to be a magical serenity when fluffy flakes float down to earth.  With this mystical essence, the innocent and playful child exudes from within me.  Oh face it, when the powder stuff blankets the ground, a little child comes out in all of us...whether for a few hours or a few days.


Yet, it is rather amusing how within a short amount of time, the same transformed innocent and playful child grumbles and rants about the not so tropical weather.  Yep, that's usually how adulthood screws with us. 

With that in mind, go ahead and continue to be the ecstatic and giddy youngster when GOD blesses us with painting HIS glorious world with a magical ice domain.  Enjoy and embrace it while we can because we don't get it all the time and face it...we're not as young as we were yesterday. 

So build a snowman, have a snowball fight, build a fort, or have an snow picnic with your loved one.  But whatever you do, live.  Live and laugh in the present.

  1. What a great post and so true. My family and I embraced the snow and all it had to offer while we visited family in NC. Living in the Caribbean doesn't provide much opportunities to see snow so we had to store up memories for those hot days of Spring that are quickly approaching.
