Whether we like it or not, winter is here. I am actually OK with it, I am absolutely a creature of the sun and am looking forward to the extra glimpses of sunlight even if that means only getting it a minute or two at a time. We haven’t had too much snow yet but I did manage to capture this image this morning of one lonely little snowflake.
I am amazed at the snowflake process. High in the air a tiny little cold water droplet must freeze itself to a piece of dust or pollen – this is what forms the ice crystal. As the ice crystal falls to the ground water vapor freezes onto the crystal giving it it’s unique shape. Shapes are different depending on the temperature and humidity. Each individual snowflake is unique and one of a kind because of the path it takes to get to its destination.
As we move past the Winter Solstice remember – “Our time here is magic! It’s the only space you have to realize whatever it is that is beautiful, whatever is true, whatever is great, whatever is potential, whatever is rare, whatever is unique, in. It’s the only space.” Ben Okri
