In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan, 
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone; 

Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, 
In the bleak midwinter, long ago. 

Wait for me
I had the most relaxing holiday. It is funny how removing yourself from your life , even a few city blocks  , can allow you to forget , regroup and gain perspective. I spent an entire afternoon by the fire going over the Branding section of my redleafstudio workshop and making an inspiration board on Pinterest. I hope your Holidays provide some quiet moments.

People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.  ~Elisabeth K├╝bler-Ross

Frosty inspiration

I deperately miss having the time to pick up my camera and do something creative and beautiful.
Wearing Carharts every spare minute and doing constuction work is not the same LOL.
Now more than ever I love to take a coffee break and admire the work that some of my fellow photogs are doing these days , it truly feeds my soul.

Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time the comforts of solitude and the pleasures of company, ~ Author Unknown

it happens every year without fail and yet it still takes me by surprise. a few short days ago i went to bed on a chilly fall evening and woke up to a white world of blowing snow. more than most years , i was not mentally prepared for it. a half built house in the rigid cold is a depressing thing. last night i took solace in the remaining film from my summer roll.

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
