Emma Sage and I went for a quiet walk in the snow last night, just as the day was ending........it was that beautiful kind of snow that blankets the earth, clinging to every branch and limb.....softening the sounds of the world.

I was walking to reflect on a passing in my life. My dear cousin Beth, who I have posted about before in the blog, gained her wings this morning, just as the Dawn was breaking. So, what could be more fitting than a quiet walk at Dusk to say 'Good-bye'.

Emma Sage delighted in the snow.........so I must share a few images I took while we walked and talked about life.

Oh! the snow, the beautiful snow, Filling the sky and earth below, Over the housetops, over the street, Over the heads of the people you meet. Dancing, Flirting, Skimming along. Author: J.W. (Joseph Warren) Watson

I love the pictures you took and how the pureness of the fresh falling snow cleared your mind for a time.
