My friend Nina sent me this lovely glass acorn ornament. She told me to hang it where it will reflect the winter light. I thought about that ........ the winter light. The shades of these winter days has been mute, rain and fog blur the landscape and I find myself becoming melancholy after days and days of no sunshine. This is what those days look like.
I take to heart what Nina said and I begin to look into the reflection of the light, shining off the raindrops in the trees and how the sky and trees reflect in the puddles.
Then this morning the sun is shining brightly and I feel my spirits lifting. An omen of a bright new year.
