southern snow

Snow in the South is  a very magical thing... It only happens once a year... maybe twice...

It comes,  if you are lucky, and lays a soft silent blanket of frozen upon the world... everything freezes.. the bustle of everyday life... perhaps it is harkening back to the days where the world moves at a slow pace in the south... and in this world of air condition and computers we don't have to be slow.. we can race along with the rest of the world... until there is the moment of snow... and we stop...

Today there is a silent stillness.. silent are the cars in their driveways, you can't hear the distant low highway rumble or planes over head, the only sound is the falling "wintery mix" which sounds like a rainstick... more then rain ever does, which is ironic because they are made from desert plants. Perhaps that that is the sound of rain falling on the hot parched desert sand... perhaps there is something sacrad and rare in that sound... the same magic which creates a southern snow.

Geffri sticks his nose deep in any of the footprints he finds.. burring  that long skilled nose of his in what I imagine to be a crisper smell then a normal scent... only the contrast of snow and the scent none of the middle tones... much like my world. The snow has created a stark contrast  between the rounded shapes of snow stark white snow... hiding the things underneath... sharp edges softened by the snow.... and the world that is above the snow... darks shapes... devoid of their normal midtones..sharp crisper outlines of trees.

Today is a Day for books..hot chocolates...fireplaces...warmth...spontaneous adventure...snow men....sledding...forts and snowball fights.

Northerners may know how to drive in snow....this may be nothing....they may "know snow"
But Southern snow is different southern snow has magic

Happy Thankful post

So I moved...

And then to the bragging rights.. at tourney I get my pretty little Kittyhawk... which makes me all grinny..I was holding Dot at the time so she got to come to court. People kept trying to offer to take the princess Dot from me... but I miss her so, so I held her as I got my fabulous scroll complete with a fox juggling eyeballs.. how perfect, thank you Dunstan!

I also was asked to be Baronial Champion.. I am honored, a little scared, feel a lot of pressure to get better cause now I am representing the best barony EVAH...so I got to be able to represent....Honnored that with so many great fencer in the area I was choosen.....Someone said that me and Martha flanking the court was definatly a happy bubbly addition.

Cause I like prezzies...

And agreed to post it for prezzies from ignescent  (hopefully spelled right... evil is the way of spelling)


The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations so please read carefully:

- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year (2009).
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It will be something made in the real world and not something over the internet. It may be a mixed CD. It may be a poem. I may crochet, knit or sew something. I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure! [not me either]
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

Here's the fine print:

In return, all you need to do is post this text into a note of your own and make 5 things for 5 others.

Snow!

For the second time this year the world of nc is filled with silent contrast.

The stark white against black and the deep winter green of the stately pine trees... all striped of their normal shadings of highlights and shadows. reduced  to a single shade... darkness or light. The only thing spared from the two-tone contrast is the millions of  greys in the sky....where all the highlight and shadows escaped to dance across the atmosphere, made even more vibreant by the lack of hue in the world below.

I love the snow SQUEE
