I've been here....I've done this...I've witnessed this exact scene - countless times before. In all weather...in all seasons - I've walked this path well-travelled.
After days of grey and white - I woke to skies bright and blue. To winter birds - singing. To icey air that caught my breath...and held it.
I exhaled. I inhaled. I stopped - for just a moment - to look...to see....to capture just this. Just as it was.
I thought I knew everything about this season that I so love. I believed - I've seen it all...I know it all...that it couldn't ever surprise me. But - on this morning - my old and familiar friend looked all new.
And - she was truly breathaking. Wasn't she?
