"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Sunday Stroll: Snow Shapes

Over the course of a frigid, sub-freezing, occasionally windy week, the snow of last Sunday froze hard, forming interesting sculptures.

The pointy curvy one. Like an elf shoe. Could there be one lying on its back, buried beneath that white blanket?

A snow buffalo.

Actual snow cone.

With light shining behind it, this snow wall is translucent. And there's a little tiny passageway at the bottom.

Snow hugs a door sill.

Sharp peaks formed on the back staircase.

Admission: the above photos were taken on Saturday. I knew the shapes would disappear today because...

...we're getting...

...a lot more snow!

Much to our poor displaced robin's chagrin. It sits in the winterberry tree almost all the time, which offers the best--perhaps the only--source of sustenance.

Thanks for stopping by.

Keep strolling over here!
