Spirit Warmer

northern exposures

Twenty six below. Snow depth 20 inches.

Funny how we take for granted what we have plenty of but yearn for what we lack. We gain a minute of sun everyday, and every one of them is precious. Recently one of my students stepped outside and caught a glimpse of the sun peering through the trees. “Oh, the sun,” she sighed. Last Sunday I walked uptown and by chance saw these sunbeams breaking through the spruce – there a moment, gone the next. My spirit quickened, Sol withdrew its light and I sighed (as she did). I must not forget.

  1. The sun is amazing… Actually we all say or accept that the sun is sun and same in everywhere…. BUT no, not same… as this photograph I can see how strong and how amazing… Doesn’t look like the sun that I am used to see in here… Geographical realities and also the atmosphere, etc. they are all reason for this…. should be like that. I can die for these moments Thank you dear Dave, this is so beautiful sun touches I have never seen before… With my love, nia
