Winter Whites





New Year's Eve 2013, quiet evening in Chicago with husband, daughter and granddaughter. The snow is heavily falling, we peek out the frosty windows to the street lights, checking, wondering: will the soft white flakes continue through the New Year's Night?   For a southern gal this is quite an experience....Slowly I breathe memories on the panes: I am a small child, on a farm, running in snow up to my knees, falling, plopping, sinking into soft white pillows forming snow angels.
This silence gives pause for a moment's reflection....

Tomorrow will be a snow-white Day, a New Day in my blank white day-calendar. 
What will the pages hold?
