Just Add Frosting

Add frosting and it's still a weed

I’m not cutting this weed today; it’s too pretty. Every object seems oddly beautiful dressed in white. The freezing temperatures mixed with a warm heavy fog created thick blankets of stunning crystals. For this event, all wears white!

I threw a camera into the car, drove and shot, admired the white world, and 166 pictures later coasted in to a gas station on E with cold feet still in slippers.

I drive by the neighbors every day but today I stopped and took a picture.

Sometimes I live on a very superficial level. It makes me wonder what weeds I will not cut in my life because they look good to me. Funny (Not so funny), I never even noticed this weed at the end of the drive that enters to our house. I pass by it every day and it never get’s noticed until it’s pretty.

I suppose I should ask my wife about the weeds in my life. She would tell me. She notices many more things than me. I’m thinking a good time would be a nice dinner, good conversation, and subtle up to the topic. I think I need to look good first.

    Gary I truly enjoy your blog entries. I get so caught up in work and kids activities that I rarely take the time to stop and meditate on where I’m going, how I’m guiding my kids, and whether i am showing them what is really important on our brief stay in this world.

    I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy seeing your blog, grabbing a soda and gaining some perspective for my life!

      I know what you mean Brian, I actually started the blog to force myself to become more aware of my own pulse, Am I growing or dying? Glad you can connect here.

    Beautiful pictures Gary, and thought introspection on ones life. Those pictures need to be a publication.
