First Snowfall of the Season

Today marks the first snowfall of the season and an early winter. It's been a quiet storm – it's still going on now. I have to admit I like when it snows at night. It's peaceful to watch. I like seeing everything get blanketed by fresh snow – maybe it's because I don't have a car to clean. And I like the contrast between the white snow and the dark sky. When I was younger, I use to watch the snowfall from my window at night. I would leave my window cracked, because I like breathing in the crisp, cold air of winter, but not cracked wide enough to make the room cold. It's so easy to appreciate snow, when you are warm and comfy indoors. I am thankful. So often though, snow in New England isn't remembered too fondly. But I don't think I could live somewhere where it doesn't snow. I like the change it brings; it's refreshing. I really enjoy having four seasons.

View from my window.
One day, I will check out Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater in the Winter – and in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. It looks so majestic frozen over. Of course it looks marvelous all year round. This is one of my favorite pieces of architecture – I once made a model of it in high school out of basic art supplies. But during the winter, it just has an extra zing to it. It looks like the perfect place to sit by a slightly cracked window and watch the snow.

I've also been listening to a lot of David Choi. I think it has to do with the fact that I went to his and Clara C's concert last week. Here take a listen: I like Lucky Guy and By My Side. And of course Darling It's You, a duet with Clara C. (I've linked to live versions I've found on youtube because he's great live. They're all Boston performances. I didn't go to that specific concert I linked where he performed Lucky Guy, but I did go to the one where he performed By My Side. And the Darling It's You performance was from the concert I just recently attended.)
