Today was a snow day and since I am a teacher in my other life, that meant I had the day off….sort of…so I chose to spend it with you.
I love how quiet and almost sacred it feels after a fresh snow. Eight inches fell on my house and trees and it transformed my surroundings. It was breathtaking! The trees were outlined with white and dark. The noise was muted, as if you were entering a sanctuary.
As much as I adore my students, I truly appreciated this day off…even knowing that I will teach longer in June for this privilege of rest.
Quiet, contemplative, and obsessively trying to learn how to run and design a webpage. My obsessiveness was somehow balanced by the snow. Somehow it was grounding.
I appreciate that!
I believe each day is a gift. What did you do to celebrate, or simply appreciate your day?
