Nature is truely something to be
wondered at, our little corner of the world
here in Worcester Mass has been treated to something I
would like to try to share with you as best as simple words can do.
It's dangerous....Potentially deadly.
But at the same time I can't think of anything more awe-inspiring than
an ice storm. The day before yesterday we were pelted with rain after
a brief smattering of snow and thus awoke to a frozen ice-encased world.
The snow beneath allowed the roads to be cleared without problem and
the chill temperatures have kept the pristeen beauty alive for two
days so far...venturing forth into this amazing wilderness that has
been created here is nothing short of miraculous. everything is encased
in at least a quarter inch of ice...even the weeds look beautiful,
the old dead grasses from last
Whole hillsides look like ghostly visions of fairy-tale wonder
as the light catches in the limbs and boughs giving the whole an
and the night...what mystical things happen then.
Light reflected off glassine casings in a thousand fingerlets of light
blazing in the dark like fiber-optic illusions.
Everywhere you look
another panorama sparkling in the dusk. Silver-white spectors raised
to the heavens in honor of that which created us all...
Love and Light...
Here and Everywhere...
Now and Always
