the snow in me


it has been snowing for a while now, they say big storm is coming. the flakes have been so large and soft. i love it very much, and i know i have said that a lot. i am not sure what it is, here on the farm with rolling pastures, stone walls it easy to know why, but i have always been like that. i think it reminds me of me, when i lived at home, montreal canada. i remember all the snow then. the snow high walls down our walk way, the igloos we made. tobogganing or skating on beaver lake and cross country skiing at the arboretum. i remember my winter coat and furry hat of my youth so much so it feels as if they hang in my closet still.. i think the snow makes me feel at home, safe in the memories.

i am not going to rush it, never will i. for the silent of a winter snow fall reminds me of the happy sounds of my childhood, yet it is also so much a part of what is happening now.

* i apologize for the wet lens, snow was falling pretty steady.

Growing up in New England, your pics gave me the sense of my own childhood. I could almost feel the chill in the air, the smoke of cold breath, numb chin and rosy cheeks. Love your post and pics! Thanks!

Nadia your photos are stunning! And Montreal, Canada?? That's where i'm from!! Ha, when I was a kid we built an igloo in our front yard, those were the days when it really snowed. It doesn't seem to snow like that anymore, or i'm getting bigger and it doesn't seem like as much snow as back then ;) But snowy childhood memories are indeed wonderful :) I'm so happy to have found your beautiful blog, very inspiring. Have a good weekend! Bon weekend!

I just stumbled onto your blog -again- I have visited before but somehow I had misplaced your address. I love this post! The photos are beautiful, and the writing the same. I have had hens in the past and I love the photos of the fresh eggs and Bonne Maman jars.
