Promise of Spring

  Gray Winter Garden January 2007   Seven years ago this past January, I began this blog as part of a teacher training I was taking.  Looking back over the past seven years, so much has happened.  Reading the first blog entry I ever created made me smile, especially after this VERY snowy winter.  In spite of that, it seems that there is still much truth in what I wrote.  Let me share it with you, again.   After living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I never thought I would be depressed because it hasn't snowed! The lack of white stuff here in New England is so disheartening. What is it about snow that makes most people feel good? Could it be that the sparkling flakes create a fantasy world in the sunshine or moonlight? Or, is it that the child in us longs to run headlong into a snow drift rolling over, arms waving madly, to create a snow angel? It is gray out at the moment. It feels as if the world is in limbo. Nature isn't dead, but it's not alive
