A Vision

Mt. Lebanon, 5:22 p.m.:  Our town is a vision.  Rooftops covered in snow, the branches of the tall pine outside my window listing downward as tufts of white inspire sighs.  Scattered Christmas lights twinkle in the distance.  I thank my neighbor Eric for reminding me that "it's  beautiful out" as I mumbled something about the evening chill.

Currier and Ives has got nuthin' on us on this sweet January night.

  1. It is a beautiful town. We walked to our neighbors house last night for dinner with the kids. Just 3 doors down but what a walk. Chunky snowflakes falling, the crunch of the icy snow, the smell of fires in the chimneys. It's like going back in time with all those charming houses with their snow covered roofs. A vision no doubt.
