Encased in Crystal-the artist speaks

UPDATE” check out Mark’s close up on crystal here

She came calling with her tears but I did not stir, I had shed too many tears to be moved by hers.

Her voice then at first a whisper became insistent looking for my attention- but the screaming inside me drowned out her cool wintery voice.

Not one to give up she called even more loudly and sent her followers to tap on the windows. Still I lay listening but not moving, shadows danced upon the wall beckoning me to leave the slumber of grief.

Light came gray and silently – finally I answered her call………

The artist had finished her work during the night and I woke to find just like my heart a world encased in crystal

Not satisfied with the bowing down of the trees to her talent she calls once more with voice of winter her subjects to acclaim her expertise – tears turned to crystal- encasing the life that waits for the softer tears of her spring- when once more she will remind us of her talent to make our world beautiful.

    How excited was Ritchey to go outside and take all those shots?

    Nature has such a way with it’s artistic talents.

    I feel for those who couldn’t stay in a warm place and admire the beauty.

    Well he wasn’t too happy that I was telling him you have to go and take these pictures and this shot when it was nothing but cold and ice and I need the shot NOW!!!!………. I suppose I should learn how to take photos ( I have tried and I really am a disaster…..) because I can never seem to get him to take the shot I am seeing so he had to go out three times and hang out a window but well at least I got a “semblance” of what I wanted……….

    It wasn’t until I was on my way home today that I was able to appreciate how incredibly beautiful the ice made everything.
