Snow

wingslike crushed glass

Like a lot of Europe now this country is snowed in and frozen over. The air is crisp, the light pearl coloured and the ground crunches and glitters like crushed glass.
The roads I've followed so often are erased, old paths are forged anew with some approximation. The snow turns the well-known into unfamiliar, the mundane into an adventure, city walkers into explorers and pioneers.

snow slows us down (trudging through, looking in wonder, obliterating vision) and speeds us up (gotta get warm again!) in ways that simplify. happy snow days.

OMGoodness! I have just stumbled upon your blog. I'm going to shop as soon as I leave this comment. My daughter outgrew my lovingly handsmocked dresses and such many years ago. My pleater and threads and needles have lain still. I could not bear to part with them. Your blog has just re-inspired me to get them out and try something new! Thanks so much. Your work is stunning!
