On another day - I'd see the mountains.
Just over there...on the other side of here...looming large and bright.
Blanketed in winter whites...or spring greens...or golden autumn oranges.
On this day - I see nothing.
I see in black and white and shades of grey.
I see - only - a winter landscape.
It was right here. Where it all began.
Another season. Another year. Another lifetime - it sometimes seems.
I blink my eyes. I look again.
I see silver skies...and the sun's gold rays...and a palette that is filled with color.
I see harmony. I see balance. I see simplicity...and quiet...and peace.
I see beauty.
