Getting Ready for Seasonal Crafting
This morning these online photos reminded me of my West Virginia roots. Waking to a brilliantly lit room of the sun shining through a chilled, glass world. One of the elusive times of true silence in this busy world. The power out, the world caked in thick, clear ice, the only sounds are the humming from your own mind trying to comprehend the muted world and the occassional cannonade crash of a tree falling somewhere in the forest from the weight of the ice, sounding like some vehement monster stepping your way. I'm in Idaho now, there's never an ice storm. Yearning now to be in my West Virginia wilderness, staring over a bright, snow covered forest where a neighbor is only seen by the distant smoke coming from a chimney several mountains over. Still, the cold in this desert is urging me to start the Halloween and Christmas crafting time ... the best crafting time of the year.
