Okay, back to the real world--the real world of eastern Oregon, anyway, which means...it's still winter!
Although I might complain about the cold and wind as much as the next person, the truth is that deep down I do love this time of year. I love the way snow clarifies--re-inventing the landscape in starkly simple terms. And I love the colors of winter. People often think of the season as dreary and colorless, but a close look is rewarded with an often subtle but richly expressive orchestra of hues. Like the beautiful reddish browns and tans of an old fir trunk that has sloughed its bark. Or the steely blue-black glint of a purling stream not yet frozen over.
"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces up, and snow is exhilarating; there is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather."
~ John Ruskin
