Promise in the Air

a soft filter of light
quiet afternoon shadows
spring inching forward


More snow is in the forecast, but the melt/freeze cycle has started. Sunny days soften the snow which refreezes overnight. The quality of light is changing as days become longer. The evergreens seem to stretch and breath deeply after the long, cold winter. I'm breathing more deeply, too. There is a promise brought by the warmth of the sun. Wherever you are, I hope you feel that promise, too.

  3. So beautiful. Yes, the hope of Spring is here, even in drought-weary Northern CA. Everything is brilliant green, trees blooming everywhere. Just enough rain to make it all happen again. I love your focus on the light as it moves and changes through the seasons. Always one of my great joys.

  5. So beautiful, Barb. Here, it's more like a suggestion than a promise but I'll take it.

  9. Absolutely beautiful words Barb, just like your snowy-spring world. In India (Mumbai) winters are slowing fading away and it's the promise of a very very hot summer that I am breathing right now.
