Shadow...

There is something about a snow day...

An unexpected gap in the hum of life, not necessarily stalling, just a shudder or a hiccup. It is a chance to be grateful for shelter, for warmth, for good food, comfortable clothes, electricity, hot water. It is a chance to indulge in safety, insulation and creature comfort.

In a busy life, it is an unexpected but welcome deep inhale followed by a prolonged exhale.

Today served up one of those breaks in the action. It was a day for thinking and baking and cooking and writing and working and resting. It was time in the shadows of protective wings, safe, warm, sheltered, grateful.
