Light pillars danced through out our Manitoba sky.
The cold continues. But so does the beauty…
“When it gets cold enough for ice crystals to form in the air, light pillars can appear before your very eyes. Natural and artificial light reflects off the crystals as they suspend in midair, creating pillars of vibrant color that shoot into the sky and give the illusion that you’re about to be beaned up on an episode of Star Trek.”
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
A lovely all season field stretches just beyond our back yard. Lacie and I walk here once, sometimes twice a day. We are so grateful for this beautiful piece of prairie that sits right outside our back door.
“Then the sun peeped over the edge of the prairie and the whole world glittered.” ~ Little House on the Prairie
