Pure as Snow

As I was sitting there looking through the window and watching the snow change the town’s scape thoroughly the word purification came to mind.

Do we need this amount of snow to purify our dusty city? Can this purification make our minds clearer and change thought patterns of the country? Will it bring so much needed cleansing?

If so, Β let it snow…..

Taken with my phone this morning from my office window.

The attached music is titled Pure as Snow.Β

  1. It’s relaxing to sit and watch the snow fall
    I also think it can be inspiring too… πŸ™‚
    Some weather makes us to unconsciously slow down
    so our brains can catch up with our bodies ….. ‘hahaha’

    Very well captured… πŸ™‚

  2. What’s all that white stuff? This transplanted East Coaster sometimes misses a nice purification … until it comes times to shovel it all!
    Paula, who is performing that wonderful music (maybe the bigger question should be: where do you come up with all this wonderful music)? That’s right up my alley!

    • I have noticed you commenting on my music several times πŸ™‚ It seems that our musical tastes match. It is a Japanese band Mono.

  3. The old saying, “Pure as the driven snow’ comes to mind as I listen to your beautiful music, sitting by the pool in the heat of Belize. πŸ™‚

  4. I think the snow does indeed serve a purification purpose Paula.
    But I wouldn’t know since it’s currently 24C here. For mid January, I’l take it. πŸ™‚

  5. Beautiful words indeed, I think that purification can only start when each individual has the courage to stand before a mirror and look into hidden places and sincerely ask themselves…”In my thoughts, words and actions, have I had the courage to strive for humility, so that the doorway of love can be opened into my heart……”
    God bless

    • and to get back to your quote about humility …. the greatest problem in the world I think is ego … we should let go of it …..

      • Very true indeed pride is mankind’s biggest downfall and Achilles heel. Isn’t it ironic how we admire humility in other people but look at it as a sign of weakness when applied to oneself. I once read an explanation of humility in the bible being described as ” strength under control”. I thought what a beautiful way of explaining such a noble virtue
        God bless you πŸ™‚

  6. All that beautiful snow!!! It was in the 50’s here yesterday and the snow was melting like crazy. Not happy about that at all! πŸ˜€ I’m glad someone is getting snow.

  7. All our lovely snow is melting! My first thought, when I started to read, was also Β«pure as the driven snowΒ», and I see now that I was not alone. When the snow falls here, it certainly makes the city look spiffy, but that’s about all — it doesn’t change anything, except that it gets quieter and the traffic moves slower.

    • We got snow – tons of it … then we got mush, now we are getting fresh snow and ice, that will soon turn into black ice – ouch … with our winter service it is a disaster. We had bombers’ attacks in a part of the town that caused some serious panick among the citizens and today some prankers made a huge snow bomb at the site of explosions instead of a snowman πŸ˜‰

    • Sometimes it takes hours of listening and searching in my music library, at times only half an hour, and sometimes as I take a picture I already have music in my mind πŸ™‚
