You Hold the Key.....

Picture the Holidays
Day Four: You Hold the Key
We all have at least one magic remedy that no matter what, will give us the perspective that we need. The key is to remember what that is and pull it out when we need it most. Because this month is about enjoying ourselves and not letting the craze out there get the best of us, use today to remind yourself of your own soul cure so you can have it at the ready for whenever you might need it. What helps you to slow down, take a deep breath and enjoy the moment? Creatively capture that thing you need to soothe your soul. 

Last night.  First significant snowfall of the season.  After the kids were tucked into bed (and Ray agreed that I wasn't taking my life in my hands by going out in the snow at 11 p.m.), I escaped.  I drove into town for a walk and pictures.....Well actually, I made the 8 mile trip twice.  The first time, I stepped out of my car with camera in hand, only to realize that I took the CF card out earlier in the evening. I had no way to take a single shot.  Arrrgghhh!  

So I made the snowy trek home and then back again.  

And oh my, it was SO worth the extra effort.....It was stunning.  And quiet.  And so peaceful.  Talk about a breath of fresh air.

I really should do this more often.
