experiencing the drama of seasonal changes
Over the winter glaciers, I see the summer glow. And through the wind-piled snowdrift, the warm rosebuds below.Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today, I went out with my friend Tom to experience the wonder of a river filled with ice. Tom told me that, when he first looked at the river, it was clogged with ice. By the time that I got there, there was plenty of ice but it was flowing freely, racing down the river. It was a sight to behold, and was, for sure, amazing and awesome. The removal of the boom from the Niagara River is a sign that spring is on its way. Yes, I know that the calendar says that spring arrived a few weeks ago, but this is Western New York, and we are always a bit behind. Yesterday morning, it was warm and sunny, and this morning, the snow fell and, by this afternoon, the winds howled across Grand Island from one side to the other.
So anyway, what’s left to say? Oh, did I set a theme word for the Ultimate Blogging Challenge for this month? I hadn’t, so I will do that now. Openness. That sounds like a good one. Open to the possibilities of what I might see during the course of this month as I complete this photography challenge. At least one picture a day for the month. Who knows where I will go or what I will discover? Keep following me to find out what’s next!
