It’s not from this year, but it certainly gives the impression of winter.  It seems like I should be sad for the rose, but I’m not.  It didn’t quite have enough time to fully blossom when the force of winter took over, and that’s OK.  I like winter too.  It lends a certain air of beauty to the scene, don’t you think.

I awoke well before dawn in order to take a nice hot shower.  I knew I needed to warm myself before putting on the many layers of clothing I’d need to wander around on the lake shore in the 10 degree cold.  I do love being out there, it’s just the preamble and gathering momentum that is the most difficult.  So, dressed warmly with coffee in hand I drove down the road a ways, parked the car and walked the 10 minutes in the dark down to the lake.  A perfect winter’s day.  Cold, windless, still, quiet.  Now feeling alert and totally awake I almost melted into the landscape, its serenity deeply felt.  Watching and being with the growing light is meditation at its finest.

When I travel, I love to get up before dawn and go to a beautiful place to be with the sunrise.  From my explorations the day before, I thought this place on the edge of the lake at South Tahoe would be just fine.  After a month of no snow, it snowed like crazy the day before, then cleared off.  This morning broke mostly clear, crisp and COLD with a few thick bands of storm clouds hovering over the mountains, just perfect for sunrise reflections.  I’m not sure how the geese do it,  sleeping right on the frozen part of the lake.  I’d already been there for some time, waiting in the quiet solitude so I didn’t seem to disturb them.  We never spoke but I enjoyed their presence.  There’s such a sense of peace in the cold dawn in the mountains in winter.
