blue and brown

 ice
snow
a bit warmer today
on a late afternoon walk.
but the fields
are the ocean
 or the shore
 so blue as evening
comes
a little later
 a round corner
  sunset light 
reflected on the icysnowocean.
and as i write it is
sleeting.
~~~
out with the old and 
in with the new!
a new cutting board
handmade by a special friend
(lori's husband)
will replace the old board i bought
from ames' (north country folks!), not for food but
for my first shifu class.
a couple of hours with dorothy miller
one day in the 80's.
happy retirement: from studio
to kitchen
back to studio!

Blue, winter light gives a very special look to a photograph.

anne marie, the blues of winter are ever changing

Velma,
I still just can't quite get my head around ice and snow and you going out in it and how long it hangs around and what it must ask of people to live with it for days, or weeks or much longer still!

It looks beautiful, brings so many moods and colours and affects things and turns life around.... the drama of the seasons changing must bring poetry and something quite special. Its the foreign-ness of it it that always takes my breathe away.

I looked at your christmas time post with the apples frozen on the tree... All the ice was so stunning.

Here's to you keeping warm and doing what you love to do!

sophie, i find that my love for winter and the changeability of it more frustrating…i seem to want good skiing snow and 15 degrees only! spoiled brat.

Cool blue light.. but what a whacky winter! We went from 45 and pouring rain this morning, to an inch and a half of snow and 24, heading down to 4. I'm sure you'll be colder there... but I'm glad we aren't getting that blast they are out in the midwest, brrrrrr!!!

valerie, yes. melissa is minus teens temp and plus teens inches of snow. we've had it pretty easy. big winds, too. ice slid off metal roofs last night. all. night. long.

Was there ever a more poetic line that "but the fields are the ocean"?

Velma Bolyard said...

fiona, mant, i'm sure, but thank you for noticing that!

Fiona Dempster said...

fiona, revisiting what i wrote, i'm not sure what mant is (typo!) but thank you for reiterating your thought.
