one year ago / snow
“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event”
Dashboard (desktop weather on a mac) shows it's snowing right now in Atlanta but I look out my window and I sure don't see it. I'm like a kid - I'll go to bed tonight and wish for snow. Little children say if you flush an ice cube down the toilet you will awake to snow the next morning and if you want an even a better chance at a "snow day" then also wear your pjs inside out. Since we don't see it much down here we get a little excited when it does snow - it is a "magical event" indeed. I remembered it snowed last year around this time and when I looked back on the photos it was, in fact, the very day - Jan 19. It was so pretty - the kind of snow that blanketed everything. I got so much joy out of taking pictures of the girls playing in it - all their inhibitions aside, they let me take pictures of them in their natural silliness. I can imagine T and her friends on campus - what fun! And I'll miss out. I remember what a blast we had at college when it snowed - the campus was one big playground. So for tonight's post I asked T to send me her favorite from that day (if she had them there at school). / i only had a screen capture i had made from iphoto - this is just a small section. snow days have forever been the dream of young children, but its definitely not lost by the time you "grow up". Last year's snow day was long awaited and it was a lot of fun to play around in it and take pictures with my best friend. we did learn, however, that it's pretty hard to operate a camera with gloves.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
