It feels as if this afternoon is a lull in time, the calm before the storm. Maybe it is the soft light or the lack of any breeze, but things seems to be very still and watchful. I relish moments like these where I can take a breath, know everything will get done that needs to get done, and just look around. The clouds are a gorgeous mix of grays, hinting at snow, but for right now just lovely to look at. They are sending out this pre-snow quiet, settling it down in preparation. Even though I am only grabbing a small slice of this quiet it feels like just the right amount.
