Beauty is all around us, if only we will see. Like a million sparkling diamonds, dawn shining through frozen branches reveal a common treasure in my front yard. And in the same morning sunlight, in our backyard illuminated tree trunks at the edge of the woods nearly glow in sharp contrast to their shadowed background. This light makes the forest appear somehow more than three-dimensional. When I notice from the kitchen window, I feel like I'm glimpsing a reality normally unseen. All of this happens nearly every clear winter morning.
If only we will see.
