When I was so much younger than I am today, December was the month of anticipation. The movement of time from the beginning of winter break until Christmas crawled slower than a snail. Today, winter is the season of anticipation…winter advisories, wind chill, snow-covered sidewalks…and most importantly…the awakening of spring.
Thus far autumn has offered us a beautiful transition with her just-right temperatures and multi-colored landscapes. In the past, it was not uncommon for her to allow winter a brief visit during the first half of November…but not this year. So this image submitted for The Girl Who Dreams Awake is of winter’s past.
