frost bite

January 5, 2009

Surprise, surprise: I'm in love again, with snow and sky, light and shadow. I haven't been carrying my camera so I haven't captured any of the beauty of this season, except in memory, but here's a moment from Christmas morning of last year to mark the lengthening days and New Year.

I chose to fast over the holidays this year, from Solstice through Christmas. It was a cleansing, energizing, rehabilitating and grounding experience which I look forward to practicing again, perhaps at Spring Equinox. In the days til then I hope for snow--piles and piles and piles of it. Drift under blue sky, in the purple shadows and amber light of Winter. Breathe in the white. Love.
