I drove by and had to stop

your beauty caught my breath

…. I just knew … I wanted more

parking the truck,

I carefully got out and walked across the  layers of

crystalized ice that lay on the path

would I get to you in time

or would the bright noon day sunlight  ..

soon….temporarily be covered by a cloud

I am closer now,  and I can see that the mantle of glistening ice

every little space has been

covered by frozen droplets of ice

not so nice to walk on

but it certainly has graced your outline

with a gem like brilliance …

… be assured that I will share

 this moment in the sun

for unlike many others

I do not see you as menace

but rather …  a mischievous winter elf

who threw diamond droplets

into the frigid air

giving us a glimpse of

a miniature  wonderland

where wee folk enjoy their winter play

Note – when I first saw this snow, I was driving in so I saw it from a different angle,  when I parked I had to go further into the lot.   Walking back to the  “sight that caught my eye”  I was struck by how beautiful it was from this direction too.  In drawing closer, the highly defined shapes I had seen driving in, were not the same, so I tried to walk around to see what I had seen on driving in,

Fact… the moment had passed.  for me to get the exact picture, I should have stopped the truck, right then and there, either put the passenger window down and tried to capture it then, BUT  had I gotten out of the truck it wouldn’t have worked either because my sight line was at a different level. Don’t you love the BUT moments.

All said and done.  I took my pictures, and checked them out when I got home.. What you see when you are standing right there.. at that moment… is not always what your camera captures.  In this case… almost, but not quite.. why.. because the actually brilliance and shading that were true to my naked eye, did not or were not picked up in the same way by the camera’s lens

LIFE is ART….   PL Precept #1   Life is Art.     

The situations we find ourselves in, every day, are much like I described above. No two people will ever see the exact same thing.. they may on an overall big picture, show and tell.  But each person responds to the stimuli in her/his own way.  If they were both able to capture it in a photo, the two photos would not be exactly the same.

We accept these difference in every day, situations, why do we have such a hard time, accepting when friends or loved ones, “see” life’s experiences in a different way than ours.  “Food for thought”

venez vibrer au rythme de vie

come vibrate to the rhythms of life

let us a create a melody of 

peaceful harmony

You – Me
