Sealed in Ice

Water, in all its forms, is what carries the knowledge of life throughout the universe.
~Anthony T. Hincks

Today's re-run is from 2014, but the part about the puppy is still true:


We've got ice today, with many striking textures and shapes. My mother-in-law is fond of saying that there's no bad weather; there's only inappropriate clothing. I haven't really mastered the art of always wearing appropriate clothing, but since I will be out this winter walking our puppy no matter what, I'd better make more of an effort! *

* I scheduled this re-run before knowing what yesterday would bring. If you know me at all, you know that I was relieved about no one being above the law. So Wednesday brought relief, but it also brought grief. Arielle, the young woman I referenced in July passed away.

These are all beautiful (or interesting), but the Ice Crystal Dancer is a truly wondrous thing.
