Lightbulb moments

Winter. I'm so over it.
Chloe and I have been taking weekly trips to the library to make winter tolerable and expose ourselves to new reading (and her to the homeless population-you'd know what I mean if you live in Springfield...)

Here is what I've been working on this past week in bits and pieces. I'm trying to do my writing that goes along with the Artist's Way and am hopeful that something will rub off on me through reading this.

The other morning on the way to school Chloe gasped and said "Mom, look at all of the glitter in the snow today!" I had to look twice before I saw it. Until she'd mentioned it all I had seen was dirty slush and ice patches and that the stop sign had finally been replaced by the city after I'd called to tell them someone plowed it over in the ice a few weeks back.

This is basically how it looked. It took my breath away.

I spent the rest of the morning asking myself the last time I'd "seen" the glitter in the snow. I didn't come up with an answer. That makes me sad.
