I well remember great periods of cold and deep winter of my early childhood. One parallel memory from my early life that strongly remains with me is the profound wonder I felt when I would go window-to-window in our warm home in awe of discovering the frosty... complex geometric etchings on each. What miraculous works of art they were... to my young eyesthen. And that sense of awe and wonder has not been depreciated at all...even after all the years. Now ... I realize more than ever...it is wonder that most shapes my own view of my world and that directs my creative energy and interests. Could that be true for all artists? Are we merely, as sc-fi writer Ursula Le Guin suggests in this quote: "The creative adult is the child who survived."
Here are some of the icy wonders that Mother Nature created... and that I enjoyed and photographed. Perhaps you might enjoy them as well. So, I am passing them along... without comment to you for your enjoyment... and use... should you be so inclined.
Two glorious wonders at work: ..." Fire n' Ice"
"I believe that wherever you find the profane, can the sacred be far behind?"
-Douglas Coupland, Canadian Novelist
