Friday Lights: Surrendering to Simplicity

As Tracey said things have felt complicated lately. The resent rash of snow storms has helped me to slow down and really enjoy the quiet stillness that it brings.
When life gets out of hand it's nice to stop and focus on the moment at hand.

I can remember being outside taking these photos and it was so quiet since no cars were on the road, no buses picking up children, no trash being pick up. The quiet of a snow storm is amazing.

The memory of these photo's illustrate the emotional connection I had to this event, the simplicity of the snow, brought quiet to my day.


  1. lovely shots and sentiments cara. xo

  2. It really is nature at its best. And the silence is what makes it that way. If you can just sit there and enjoy its beauty, it seems as though time is standing still. Beautiful simplicity Cara.

  3. That's one of the things I love so much about snow. The silence and stillness it brings. Hope you're staying warm and enjoying the white stuff, or else, dug out by now. :)
