snowy Victoria 08I cannot think of a more beautiful experience than that first, clean and fresh snowfall of winter.  It snowed in Victoria last night.  It was Christmas Eve and we went out for a walk after dinner.  We didn’t hear sleigh bells in the snow but we did hear and see children playing and laughing with abandon.

Some people find a sense of wonder and awe through their philosophical or religious beliefs.  Others find it through a walk in the forest; or a heroic act of human compassion.

To me the best place to experience the wonder and awe in this world of ours is to be the child within us.  Explore  without preconceptions; accept love for what it is; give joy to others without expectation…. and go play in the snow!
