The world was a silly beauty today. My morning walk was like walking through a Christmas card. Almost silly beautiful. Maybe I ought to have taken pics of the uglier scenes – they are supposedly more interesting – but I wanted to share some of this calm beauty that soothes and relaxes. Even when it is around -20 C. The past November was the coldest here since 1904. The start of December is probably something similar statistic-wise. I am kind of happy being out walking, taking pics, in the crisp and fresh cold. It clears the mind and is a delight for the eye. As long as fingers and toes are in motion (and wrapped in gloves/socks – as well as the rest of the body) one doesn’t freeze.
