We are still only a few days into it. I hope that before life in 2014 starts to gather momentum, you have a chance to take a deep renewing breath. That you get some space to consider, dream and plan something wonderful for the upcoming year.
Here's to making 2014 spectacular.
Like many areas of North America, the part of Ontario I live in has seen some pretty intense winter weather lately. The photo above was taken in December 2013, two days after a terrible ice storm covered the land in up to as much as 15 mm of ice. The tree damage has been significant. Downed power lines knocked power out for 15 hours for us and unfortunately much longer for many others. But always there is a bright side. When the storm had passed, the setting sun lit up the trees in my backyard as if they were decorated with sparkle lights. The beauty was awe-inspiring - I fear my image only hints at it.
