04 Feb

The snow has stopped falling and water can be heard dripping off the rooftop onto the ground just below my window. A bright red cardinal swoops past.

I awoke early to the quiet of the morning, large flakes falling. My snow cat sat on the window sill peaking through the blinds below watching the birds. I sat at the dining room window and day dreamed about rides in the pickup across the countryside where the cows graze in the warm sunshine.

It is tax season and here on my desk lay stacks of documents for filing. Just as it is finished there are new bills, letters, applications, invoices. But I don’t like spending my days with this. Hence I get it done on this winter day for tomorrow the ice thaws. The sun shines.

There are three reasons for becoming a writer: the first is that you need the money; the second that you have something to say that you think the world should know; the third is that you can’t think what to do with the long winter evenings.”
~Quentin Crisp quotes (English Author, 1908-1999)

    I spent many cold days rummaging through receipts and compiling taxes. Not a fun task but once it’s done and mailed, one feels good about doing it. Amazing where money goes and how fast when you add it all up. Not a numbers person at all, myself. So can relate.

    It is the coldest January since 1917 here in Michigan tho I love the buckets of snow we’ve gotten. It’s beautiful and better white than when it turns to slushy snirt, snow and dirt combined. And the red cardinals with the white backdrop are one of my favorite winter images.. We see the world in similar ways, Wildstorm.

    Love your quote at the bottom!! So true…

    Beautiful vision. I guess I’m an oddball, though, as I actually like the snow. This morning (Saturday) K and I took a 1.5 mile walk through it. It wasn’t as bad as it might sound; it was sunny, the winds were calm, and the snow was a dry powder. Hope you have a wonderful Saturday, too.

    Hi Anita ! I love that scene…farmland. But am counting my blessings that I’m warm here in St Petersburg FL and not where the snow and ice is.
    I love that quote tooo 🙂

    Beautiful black and white scene, and my kind of countryside with cows scene.
