It is winter.

Today was the first snow of the season, and it was a doozy; probably a good 4-5 inches, which is a lot for the first snow.

I love the winter and the snow.  Winter is a reminder that we don’t have as much control as we like to think we do.  Winter says: “Where are you going in such a hurry? Slow down! All that stuff that you think is so important and urgent will be fine without you for a little while; you’ll get there when you get there.”  While summer lulls us into a false sense of security, winter snaps us back to reality; man at the mercy and whim of nature, nothing anybody can do about it.

I just love how real and visceral winter is, so I decided to go for a walk and take a few pictures.  I present to you The First Snow:
