Winter Wonderland

Look! A Snow Angel.

There is a ton of snow on the ground of right now i'd say 5-6"...I dropped my trailer off for storage today at a friends parents house and almost got stuck about 5 seperate times in the truck is no good in this type of weather...2 wheel drive and all...I had to scrape snow off my truck and shovel the walkway and wear Sorrel boots and put on gloves!  Man, this winter stuff sure is different...but i love makes everything so quiet and peaceful and beautiful...I took some shots in black and white today with the camera and it is just an amazing sense of still beauty...I mostly stayed indoors all day and stayed busy with the things I've been putting off for months...organizing old paperwork and basically cleaning house a bit.  Tomorrow I'm going skiing!  
Gus left yesterday and that was tough, but i know we'll see each other soon.  He was my taxi driver of sorts...stay with ever notice that when you get to a foreign place, there is a taxi driver who ushers you in, usually safely and without worry and in general they have a steadfast character about them that makes you forget about the new place and helps you get right to the heart of where you are going...well, Gus was my taxi driver...i think he is for hire and cheap too...and no one can come close to his character....thanks made this trip safe and helped me forget that i didn't know anything....

What a lovely snow angel. Beautiful shots of the snow. Quite a dichotomy from LA. If Gus is your Taxi driver then you must be mine. Wish you could be my taxi driver in Fiji! Love and miss you much. xoxo
