Haven’t you ever noticed it? The distinct beauty of when everything’s white, and silent. It’s more beautiful than even the best of summer days. And then, just when you think winter can’t get any more beautiful, the sun sets and the world changes. The snow glows orange and pink, slightly glittering in the fading light. Then, in the background, the sun reflects off of the icicles creating streams of purple through the frost bitten air, that make even the darkest corner of my soul bright again. It’s absolutely breathtaking. People wonder why I love winter so much, but with beauty like that… who couldn’t?
