Exactly one year ago we were going through a magical experience, frost lay like ribbons across the trees and branches early morning. An hour later and the trees were back to bare branches.
This year the frost has been much lower, not touching the trees.
I cannot ever imagine living in a country where these daily treats don't occur. Some moan and groan about such things but maybe they have stopped seeing or have lost the most precious of gifts WONDER itself. This to me, over many years now, has become the saddest thing among people, losing a sense of WONDER & AWE, that childhood gasp, that 'Whoa!!!!'
Our language has changed drastically, where the word AWESOME is applied to pizza, cellphone cover or pastie.
