It's so bright--because of all this snow--that I'm drawn outside to bask in it.
With snow up to the knees, and school canceled for the second day in a row, one would think this situation might prevent an appreciation of beauty. One would think.
The snow reflects the sun in ways that shame the hottest and brightest summer day. And I remember the old quote from E. Stanley Jones that "weather. . . is always favorable if you know how to use it."
It's favorable weather: It brings its own advantages and its own special beauty, like everything does--if I let it.
