Story-A-Day #391: Storm Melt


It's an optical illusion of course, but at a quick glance you might almost think the top of the building was melting. With the sun in a position that is just right, you can see a dent in the top of the building across the parking lot, almost like the heat of the sun's rays were melting the icy brick building.

It's the snow that really sets the scene though, big soft, fat flakes drifting gently on the breeze.

It is days like today that help you appreciate what winter does have to offer. Winter shouldn't always be about the hibernation process. Sometimes we need to step out into the wonderland and embrace all that is available to us.

Winter is a magical time of year, one where the world is blanketed in pure, white snow. Beneath that blanket, nature is at rest. The grass, plants, insects and animals all rest until the return of warmer weather.

It is tempting to want to do the same, but not at all realistic. We need to keep going, to weather the melting storm until we reach the other side. That is where our lives will begin anew, but for now, we must appreciate the magic before us.
