It’s winter. Time to get to the slopes.  Play in the snow and feel winter’s charms.  One of the great benefits and enjoyments of living in California is the proximity of ocean and mountains.  On the one hand there’s the power of the Pacific Ocean just a few miles from home.  Beach walks and just hanging out at the ocean watching sea and sky is a never ending treat.  And now it’s winter.  The skies have dropped the slippery white powder many live for.  It’s not far from the ocean to get to the beauty of Tahoe and frolic in winter’s bounty.  Happy skiing.

It’s nice being in the desert in winter.  Finally, there’s a chance to find some cloud cover as opposed to the constant blue skies you find most of the time.  And the temperature.  So pleasant.  On this morning, I headed out before sunrise and spent some time wandering around Papago park in Phoenix.  This stand of palm trees caught me eye and the mostly calm reflection in the lake provided a rich fullness to the serenity of the scene.

Dreaming of Spring?  This woman seems to be.  But it must be a large responsibility to be a guardian of the King’s castle surrounded by the beautiful rhododendrons.  Her name is Echo and lives in the gardens of Rosenborg castle in Copenhagen, Denmark.

There’s something about watching young kids playing and having fun.  Maybe it reminds me of times gone by and my own youth.  Or spending those countless hours watching my own kids make their own play.  Or times spent now watching my grandkids play.  Maybe it’s the ever constant flow of time and life that touches my awareness and helps me to realize and appreciate with gratitude the beauty of life.  What a ride we have here.  It reminds me to play more and enjoy the time we do have on Earth.
