It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake,
the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam.
This crisp winter air is full of it.
~John Burroughs, "Winter Sunshine"
A winter's day on a mountain top, blue sky and sunshine,
a night in a cosy chalet,
a walk to a ski village to enjoy a gondola ride,
a steaming coffee, sitting outdoors in the warm sunshine,
a soak in a hot-tub,
good food with family and friends,
curling up with a book,
watching grand-boys at play.... all added up to a satisfying 24 hours.
