After several days of struggling with and thinking about the concept I was blogging about, I finished a posting. Only to discover that it hadn't saved because I had too many characters in the labels. Sigh.
I could say live and learn ...

People might say: what's the big deal? You can always rewrite it...
The problem is, my mind doesn't go the same place twice. Oh sure, I can write a new blog on the same theme. The idea is still there. The theme is still there. The pictures are still there.
|Light house - the same day|
|Muskrat - the same walk|
Just like the pictures in this blog.

It's been a mild winter here in southern Ontario. Unseasonably warm temperatures tempered with brief tastes of winter.

40 cm of snow
shovellers out in force
The next morning, I peaked out my window - and saw a different world. A frozen world with a thin sheet of snow covering the lawn. Blanketing the bud, the sprouts, the grass, everything. The softening earth now frozen with the quick freeze. Blast frozen.
The whole view changed suddenly. Overnight. If I hadn't taken pictures the afternoon before, I would have thought I had been imagining things.
A week later, the view from my window changed yet again. Forty centimetres of snow came down, creating a thick covering of snow over everything. Schools cancelled. Libraries and universities closed. People out on the 401 in Toronto with their snow shovels.
Life changes. It never stays the same - from one moment to the next. Always fluid. Always changing.
Embrace the flow.
And yes, I rewrote the posting. On the same theme, but different. Just like life.
