In the Deep Freeze of a Polar Vortex

The weather buzzword this December is “polar vortex.”  An Arctic air mass has drifted further south than normal, sending temperatures in  the American Midwest plummeting into a deep freeze.  Yet in a landscape frosted white,  the usual Michigan suspects of woods, water, and blue sky  provide grist for the photographer’s mill.  And we know that beneath the snow lies a promise of spring’s return.

 

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.

Hints of Winter and the Invincible Summer

When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on the faces surrounding him. In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.

Alas, Autumn’s golds are fleeting and too soon faded and fallen.  But, we are promised the return of the greens of Spring.

I had the whole sky in my eyes and it was blue and gold.
