something wicked this way comes
Do you really want to live forever?
I shivered the whole night through
if it’s in your nature, you never win
Midas is king and he holds me so tight
and every forest sings a song
I think we’ll be alright
Maybe this Christmas will mean something more…
all is calm, all is bright
Let nothing you dismay

Hello Margaret!

then the snow started falling, we were stuck out in your car…

About a week ago we got caught in the snow. We were on the road, driving home, and got stuck in traffic. Someone was having trouble and we all had to wait for the snow-ploughs to come and clear the road for us. I very quickly gave up and started taking pictures. Most of them were awful and blurry, due to the fact that I was taking them while leaning out of a car moving at 5 miles an hour through a blizzard, but some of them are quite pretty, I think. I love how bare branches look when they are covered in snow; delicate and sharp, like they have been etched onto the landscape. It reminded me of a song I heard a long time ago, that broke my heart a little bit. I urge you to listen to it.

These photos are breathtaking. I'm amazed you managed to take such good ones, as well, because when I try it's not that most of them are terrible but ALL of them are always terible. Which is strange because it's always so beautiful in real life!

OH wow they look so pretty and magical, I love snow but when it goes all slushy and horrible I just wish it would go! All my snow has gone now and the sun is out :)
