January: Ice and Glass





Snow #2 : 2014 .... January Ice ....



I got a call today...... my girlfriend was on her way to the hospital,  stroke maybe seizure....... this just happened recently to yet another friend  too.... and death's in families around me. Treacherous things to happen in January... the January Ice.   The winter months are full of sadness, sickness, the flu ... and snow and ice.... and deaths ..... 

I was born during this cold frigid month.. but in a warmer climate.. Louisiana..... (where they are experiencing snow, ice and closed schools and streets for the first time in decades. ) They are rejoicing in the moment .  They are normally not hindered a bit, they don't skip a beat and January is not a bad thing. 

Here is a different story. We are Not.

If you look at the snow and ice in color it s beautiful, like glass....its  amazing.  The natural sculptures are made in the fountains about town .   But you must be careful not to be fooled by the outer beauty of this view.  Your eyes will deceive you and make you think there are crystals all around you, which are healing and bring warmth .   Here, these crystals are  really quite dangerous and cold. 

We have more snow coming tonight.  I am not looking forward to the power outages, car accidents, flu's mutating and frigid weather.  Even my glass mushroom couldn't take it any more, their limits were tested and they fell and broke...they became a rubble filled pile of chipped glass amongst the dangerous ice.

Even the Angels are cold...and weary........

I am ready for this month, the month in which I was born in to be over and move towards longer days in the sun.... for everyone....
