Snow makes everything quieter. 

Background noise is drowned out by the snowflakes hitting the ground.  

Snow’s arrival gives us nature’s permission to slow down, listen to our own breathing, our own footsteps.  

It causes us to stop running to catch up with the world, and to stop and notice our private place within the larger realm. 

Although the snowflakes are temporary, they remind us that we are eternal.

  1. Oh my gosh! I just did a post, I have been working on for…too long, about the beauty of a cold winter’s night, as the snowflakes fall.
    Love the silence of a winter’s night!
    There is no greater example of peace!

    1. Hi Diana, thank you for your comment. I was walking my dog Bailey this morning when the inspiration hit me. I usually just grumble about winter, but today it hit me in a whole new way.
