The frost fairies were here this morning

Our consciousness rarely registers the beginning of a growth within us any more than without us; there have been many circulations of the sap before we detect the smallest sign of the bud.

The frost fairies paid us a visit overnight.  They must have been quite busy as almost everything was covered in frost when I woke up this morning.

The clouds cleared out just after sunset last night so we also had a beautiful, bright, blue and sunny sky greet us.

We all know what the combination of frost and sunlight means.  Colorful sparkles in the meadows!

And a lovely, golden light in the early hours.

Whatever your eye falls on — for it will fall on what you love — will lead you to the questions of your life, the questions that are incumbent upon you to answer, because that is how the mind works in concert with the eye.  The things of this world draw us where we need to go.

It will soon be time for me to move to my new blog.  I hope to have things ready to go within the next 2-3 weeks.  Certainly before April 1st.  I hope you’ll join me at the new place.  I’ll be providing a link and sneak preview soon.

Take my hand.  We will walk.  We will only walk.  We will enjoy our walk without thinking of arriving anywhere.

Thank you for accompanying me on another walk through the meadows.  I’m going to need some of these peaceful moments in the weeks ahead.  Big changes are coming with the new spring season.  More about that coming soon.

Have a delightful day, night, evening… whenever and wherever you are on the spectrum of time.  🙂

    Thanks, Robin. It’s a sunshiny day here today – bright blue sky and green getting ready to go.

  2. The frost fairies are scurrying to get some last work done till next winter!

  3. Dana says:

    Timing all of these life changes with the changing of the seasons is a wise and intuitive move, Robin. My inner rhythms are a bit confused with all this warm weather and sunshine in AZ. (I keep forgetting that it is WINTER where I live!) Looking forward to seeing the new blog!

  4. Kathy says:

    so lovely frost photos. You captured the ephemeral beauty delightfully. I especially enjoyed the wise quotes. Thinking of walking without having a destination, without thinking of arriving anywhere. Looking forward to visiting your new blog. P.S. How is the detox going?

    we only have frost a few times during the year, although it can be rather spectacular if it includes the beach … so your frost fairies are a delight dear robin! looking forward to the changes and following you to a new format … life is change 🙂

  6. Jo Ann says:

    You have certainly portrayed the seedheads in the field in their best light, so to speak! Can’t wait to see your new blog!

  7. I love the “nest of frost!” Great quotes, too.

    I shall keep my eyes peeled, Robin, for your new blog link (or should that be pealed?… sometimes English confuses the life out of me)… anywho, lovely show of frost fairies having done their intricate job, their fingers must be finely tuned and so, so delicate… 🙂 … Nature makes you gasp sometimes in awe. xPenx

  9. So lovely…we had frost this morning, but without the sunshine to make it sparkle. Beats more snow anyday! 🙂

    • Robin says:

      You certainly have had more than your share of snow this year, Marie. In fact, I’m pretty sure you got our share of it, too. 😀

  10. Pat Bean says:

    Hug the frost fairies for me. I loved the quote,too.

  11. Sallyann says:

    The nest of frost is surprisingly pretty. Pity it has to be so cold for it to happen. 🙂

Thank you for visiting, and for commenting. I hope you'll join me at my new blog home, Breezes at Dawn.
