One’s Perspective

I love snow… its beauty, the tranquility it brings and the melting potential to fill the creeks and rivers.
But I must admit what has just occurred 30 miles south of me in Buffalo NY. is downright deadly.

As soon as the first snowflakes fall I hear the complaints of the cold, how long the Winter will be and when will it ever end…

Perhaps these souls should take a cue from my daughter’s new kitten Oliver and go into hibernation mode…

I on the other hand shall enjoy it, even though it must be shoveled, respect it as it covers the streets and highways and be grateful of its breathtaking sparkle.



  1. You have captured the snow beautifully - and I love that first picture of Oliver in a most inelegant pose. We haven't had a snowfall yet for which I am grateful. Although it is a beautiful sight - it does make life difficult.

  2. It's impossible for me to imagine such massive amounts of snow. Your perspective is right on, and so is Oliver's. Your snow pictures are amazing!

  3. Mother Nature is sure taking her job seriously down in Buffalo isn't she? Scary! Snow can indeed be beautiful!

  4. I love snow if I don't have to go anywhere in it, I'm not so keen on it when I do. Oh my goodness, how cute is Oliver. I don't know about going in to hibernation but he certainly knows how to chill out, he's like a fluffy teddy bear. Your last photo is breathtaking.

  5. I am in agreement with you, Susan. Love your images.

  6. Thank you for visiting Dog Trot Farm...I so enjoy reading whats happening in your neck of the woods...yes, winter has arrived and I am going to enjoy every minute of it...Stay warm and safe...greetings from Maine...

  7. Such a beautiful kitten; a peaceful soul! Such beauty in the snow too! Keep warm. Ros

  8. I love your outlook on the snow and the beautiful wintertime Susan. I love how snow quiets the earth and subdues all the sounds. Snow is falling right now here and because we are experiencing a severe drought in the mountains north of me, I am especially grateful for it.
    Your first photo just made my day! So did your message to me too.
    Oh, and lets not forget sweet little Oliver :)

  9. Love your inspiring outlook on the beauty nature offers us. So wish we had some snow we get very little and I am in hopes that this will be our colder winter where snow is certain to fall in and about our desert area.

    Thank you for visiting my post, the French theatre. Your comment was a beautiful sight, I always love seeing newer visits.

    Beauty to you and what it offers you in all you inspire.


  10. I really can't dislike snow, although of course I am sad when it takes folks lives, but if we work with it rather than against it can feel like a blessing.

  11. Good morning Susan, and pleased to meet you! How darling is that first photo of the (toy..shhhhhh) looking out into the winterwonderland. But as we humans know, winter can pose many obstacles to our well-being. I hope that you are not inundated with snow; we are here in Minneapolis where there is not too much snow yet, but the cold is ridiculously obscene. We had -50 last year around this time, and let us not repeat that!!!!

    Thank you so much for coming to visit and for leaving a comment. Enjoy your weekend and I hope to see you again! Anita

  12. Hi Susan

  14. Lovely, and I agree it can be deadly. Cats are great in showing us how to live in the moment and relax. Lovely blog.
