Stillness of Winter

  1. I miss a “good” proper winter so much! I would give a lot to have it back again! Loads of snow and freezing cold creating my childhood memories about Christmas. I can still hear snow making cracking noise under my shoes. Beautiful!

  2. Reminds me of my childhood in the Pacific Northwest U.S. Oh, the beautiful snowfalls, before you venture out and make the first footprint in the snow – which almost makes you feel you have ruined the perfect scene. Love to stand in the woods with the wind blowing through the pine trees, such a wonderul sound to my ears. Oh, sorry, I love nature so much and have spent a lot of time enjoying this outdoor world of wonder and beauty. You have such a nice blog, sorry I did not find your blog sooner. Nature soothes your soul and brings peace to your mind.

    1. I am so glad you enjoyed the blog! Thanks for the kind words and I think we share a similar appreciation for the outdoors! Thanks for the comment and hope you enjoy the future posts!

  3. “He gives his harness bells a shake,
    To ask if there is some mistake.
    The only other sound’s the sweep
    Of easy wind and downy flake.”

    -Robert Frost

    Here’s for “going out”!

    Take care & keep in touch,

    Paz

  4. Your words today really touched my soul, Tom. In the midst of a English Midlands wet and grey Winter, I can now close my eyes and imagine myself somewhere completely different. Surrounded by snow in that breathtaking silence that fills the earth when all is white around… Thank you xx

  5. I kind of feel badly for people who do not live where there are marked differences in the seasons. Here in the NE, the winters slow us down and give our minds and bodies a rest (even tho we do have to contend the snow at times!)

    1. I here you loud and clear Kathleen! I love the seasons as each have a different purpose for the human spirit in my opinion. Winter are indeed a great to slow down and rest! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Absolutely beautiful sentiments, the relative silence of a good, heavy snowfall is one of my favorite sounds (or lack thereof?). Winter can’t come soon enough for me!

    On another note, thanks for the follow!

  7. Times when everything stops and the world seems to hold its breath are incredibly rare. I recall reading of a man who was up a church tower in 18th century Bristol at the turning of the year. The bells rang out a funeral toll for the approach of midnight, the death of the old year. He described the pause that followed as the deepest silence he had ever known, then the bells rang a joyful peal for the birth of a new year.
