First Official Snow

Last Saturday Stony Brook received her first official snow of the season.  Some snow had fallen during the night and more was falling as I took the dog outside for her morning routines.  It was beautiful to watch.  Snow has a way of muffling and quieting the normal sounds, adding an almost sacred quality to the space.  My little corner of the world felt still and calm and I thanked God for the beauty of snow-falling and blanketing the ground, the trees, the bushes, even my house.
