There comes a time when enough is enough. Living in the city, the snow is really only lovely when it’s falling and then it becomes either slush in the streets or huge drifts that make it impossible to get over, unless helped by at least two men…and then the treacherous ice. That awful feeling of thinking your head will be cracked on the sidewalk, and then what? Someone will have to rummage through my purse or cell phone to notify next of kin. Oh yes, it would be just lovely if I lived in Connecticut with a roaring fireplace, all cozy and hanging in with someone you would like to be snowed in with, but that too, would be a bit much after a few days. So at my age, I shouldn’t wish the months away and just enjoy all the moments of dark wintry nights…but always thinking of spring flowers and warm summer breezes. A few quotes to pass the lovely ice and snow storm that is coming our way tomorrow. “In your hands winter is a book with cloud pages that snow pearls of love.” Aberjhani….”Then come the wild weather, come sleet or come snow, we will stand by each other, however it blow.” Simon Dach…..”The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.” Lao Tzu…. “.As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.” William Shakespeare….”Snow was falling, so much like stars filling the dark trees that one could easily imagine its reason for being was nothing more than prettiness.” Mary Oliver…..”Winter always turns to spring.” Nichiren Daishonin…..”A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.” Carl Reiner………………………………….and my favorite…”I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.” Mae West……………………………..Happy Winter!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the laughs, Paulette! “I used to be Snow White, but I drifted” LOL. Sending warm Arizona sunshine your way ❤
Thanks Angie, Always a joy hearing from you. My husband and I spent wonderful times in Arizona. Great memories. I feel the warm Arizona sunshine right through this computer. Thank you always. I like the Mae West one too.The streets here are really dangerous due to the ice, but also the pot holes….but have concert this week to go and jazz so the energy is still here in the city. That’s what I focus on, most of the time. Cheers!
Growing up in Scranton PA, I know all about the snow and the pot holes your describe! My kids don’t know what pot holes are – wow 🙂 Enjoy your week and be safe ❤
