Way to make a grand entrance, 2017 begun with great amounts
of snowfalls blanketing parts of our coastal region what’s not
really typical at all. It all started through the early hours
of Saturday morning. A sprinkling of delicate snow covered
the fragile branches of the pine and olive trees, just a few
kilometres from home and not above 300m of altitude.
With the mercury hitting zero, the white blanket coated
our familiar location making it bright and fresh,
an enticing winter-wonderland.
Fresh, puffy, powdery flakes warned us
of what might happen…
The beginning of a snow storm is one of the most exciting
experiences and truly unique! My daughter’s sheer enthusiasm
was floating through the air!
Within two or three hours, the snow storm changed all at once
with its thick winter coat. What a pleasure to hear the crunch
of snow beneath our feet and feel the most beautiful
white powder falling on our cheeks and blowing over our hoods.
With my face turning redder and redder, I pushed myself
out of my comfort zone and brought my cup of coffee outside,
just to enjoy the snow-saturated atmosphere and the absolute
quiet and calm that always go along with it.
I blinked my eyes and shook my head!
What a miracle in front of me!
Mother nature cooperated and provided us
a gorgeous, white day!
So, let there be white!
Close your eyes and dream your dream
Then all your wishes will be seen…
May the New Year
sparkle like the snow under the sun,
with endless moments of love and laughter,
may your footprints lead you
to the place you really love to be.
