Beauty and Sadness


January cleaned up the entire landscape with pure white snow. Fresh start for the new year, a clean table to start with. We were waiting for the snow for a long time. Now it's time to skate and ski!

The snow sounds so beautiful, so comforting, under feet. Nature so full of sparkle, beauty, and increasing light. I try to live in the moment, to snatch up some outdoor activity time during the work days, while there is still light. To focus on the happy moments with my boys.



Beauty and sadness always go together.
Nature thought beauty too rich to go forth
Upon the earth without a meet alloy.

George MacDonald

Keep your faith in all beautiful things;
in the sun when it is hidden,
in the spring when it is gone.

Roy R. Gilson
