More Blues

Rain and sleet visited the coast for a good part
of the day bringing with it a churned up ocean
and misty blues!

Yesterday and Today

Yesterday the sea and sky
were deep shades of blue...
you could tell a storm might be on it's way!

Shades of white colored the landscape today as
a snow storm covered the area with a heavy
wet snow...

and the shovel that sits near
the front porch was put to
good use!

We found ourselves still doing errands in New Hampshire
in the early evening last night in a commercial area
and not very scenic!

I walked out of a store and gasped for there was the most
beautiful pale orange full moon rising.

I ran for the car and grabbed my camera
and scurried around the parking lot
trying to find a clear view without the wires...

Eventually I found a little opening...

It was so magical, it doesn't matter where
you are when you have the chance to meet
the full moon, even when surrounded by a
sea of concrete, pavement and wires
the experience is transforming and serene.

What a Sky

I fell in love with the sky in the early evening...

and when I came out of my studio tonight
I was in awe of the ring around the moon!

Sea Foam

Very cold walking along the shore
as gusts of wind rolled sea foam
down the beach...

Sea Gift

Though the snow remains at the ends of the beach
there are still treasures to be found on the wet sand
where the tides washes in and out.

a perfect angel wings

carefully carried to become another gift that
the ocean left behind.

Sometimes there seems to be magic in the air!
Just as the sun set today was one such time.

You may wonder what one colorful glove has to
do with magic....

I'll try to explain...
I almost missed taking a walk on the beach today.
I haven't walked in a long time because of all of
the snow and cold!
It was late in the day and getting dark when we
happened to be near the beach and on the spur
of the moment I decided to take a quick walk
and left D in the car reading!
As I was approaching the stairs leading to the beach,
I noticed something colorful poking out of the snow bank
on the edge of the sidewalk.
As it came into clearer focus it looked like a mitten
and it reminded me of my colorful knitted gloves
that my sister-in-law in Germany sent me years ago.
One of those gloves has been sitting in the backseat of
our car for quite some time
and I had assumed I had brought the matching
glove into the house weeks ago and kept forgetting to
the bring the one in the car inside to join it.
When I got close enough to reach the mitten, I at first
thought it might be a child's but when I bent down
and pulled it out of the snow I realized it was my glove!
I hadn't really known that I had lost it and to see it there
totally amazed me! I was ecstatic!

I wish it could tell me where it has been all this time.
We've had so many snow storms and the plows have
been moving tons of snow everywhere.
To think that I almost didn't take that walk tonight
and that we happened to park near those stairs
and that just enough of the glove was showing to
peak my curiosity...oh, it really did feel magical!

In the fading light, I happened to look down
at the dark wet sand, and barely saw the outline
of something round and then another...
sand dollars together! I carefully picked them
up and slid them in my pocket.

So clear was the sky with a delicate moon
and way above moon shone the evening star!

The stars are out...

the air is bitter cold, 7 degrees F...

...the height of the snow piles along the sides of
the path makes shoveling very difficult.

More Snow....

The path to the studio now feels like it is
between two mountains!

The disabled old Volvo has totally disappeared!
It is under the mountain of snow to the right of
the house...

In case you are wondering what
you are looking at,
below is what it looked like last April!
