Favorite Things – “Snowflakes That Stay On My Nose and Eyelashes”

I have just become in awe of snowflakes!

The intricacy, the individuality, the beauty of a snowflake is amazing!  Certainly, I have seen quite a few snowflakes in my time and have never stopped to think what they really look like immediately before they fall.  Today there was a write up about snowflakes.  A Russian photographer had taken some photos with a couple of fabulous lenses and the snapshots are wonderful!

A snowflake looks, as it is coming down, just like a little white blob but on examination, its beauty is profound!

It leads me to realize that, on first look, something or someone may look quite ordinary but, as we look for the beauty, we find it.

I charge you – today and every day , look for the beauty – it is sure to bring you joy!

    Will try to see the beauty in each flake as it falls here today. Then will try to forget it when we head to CA this weekend :) See you all soon.

    Wilson Bentley pioneered photographing snowflakes. There are wonderful books available of his photos. I introduced snowless L. A. children to the wonder of snowflakes with Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Martin. After we shared the book we cut out tissue paper snowflakes and mounted them on our classroom window panes.

      What an amazing teacher you are Lara….the children who were fortunate enough to sit in your classroom were given gifts that they will carry with them through their lives. Well done!
