It’s that time again, when the snow begins to fall on a regular basis and the sound of snowblowers humming wakes you in the morning before the sun comes up. I consider myself blessed to live in Michigan, a State that is beautiful all year round but especially when draped in beautiful white splendor. At night, especially now during a full moon, the snow looks like crushed diamonds sprinkled across the now vanished lawn.
All night it fell, and when full inches seven
It lay in the depth of its uncompacted lightness,
The clouds blew off from a high and frosty heaven;
And all woke earlier for the unaccustomed brightness
Of the winter dawning, the strange unheavenly glare:
The eye marvelled — marvelled at the dazzling whiteness.
~Robert Bridges “London Snow” 1890

I’ve always loved winter, the feeling of it being cold outside and me being inside in front of a roaring fire, cozy and curled up, reading something good. If there’s hot chocolate w/mini marshmallows…all the better.
I love this remote cabin, it looks like a lovely place to hide away for awhile – maybe to read and write in peace.
