Nature’s Music

When we pay attention to nature’s music, we find that everything on earth contributes to its harmony.

Yesterday’s storm dumped an abundance of snow on eastern Canada. Strange, that what we now call a lot of snow doesn’t compare to some of the storms we had years ago.

Today I live in the quiet, joyous expectation of good.

While I may not be winter’s biggest fan, it is impossible to ignore its beauty, impossible not to hear its sweet harmonious music.

Wherever you are may you allow nature’s music to enter your heart.

  2. Snowstorms are wonderful interuptions to life. It makes us do things we woulndn’t often do . . . like stay home and watch a movie with the kids, build snow forts or curl up with a good book.

    I grinned when you mentioned how some folks refer to the recent snow fall as an ‘abundance’. Last nights weather brought only about six inches of sprinkled flakes, far less than I’m used to.

    I, too, wrote about last nights refreshing storm in my blog: Snow, Lovely Snow: http://dianetibert.wordpress.com/

    There, you’ll find out why snow is just like writing.

    Laura, those are wonderful pictures. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks for the link, Diane! Great to know that you are blogging. Your blog is wonderful!

      What I don’t like about the snow is that it makes for unsafe travel. I don’t drive in the winter unless the roads are darn near clean and in my neck of the woods that doesn’t happen that often. When a lot of the main roads are clear ours is still snow covered. That tends to make me cranky.

  3. That is so true, there is something quite breathtaking about snow-laden landscapes. Beautiful, Laura.

    • Yes, I guess it’s nature’s way of making up for the bitter cold. We’ve been fortunate this year thta we haven’t experienced any cold snaps yet. On our trip into town the other day we noticed that one lake isn’t even frozen up yet. That’s almost unheard of.

  4. Your winter photos are beautiful and inspiring. I can see why you mention music with respect to these photos. They are fabulous and just beg for melody.

    La la la. The weather outside is frightful; the fire is so delightful. La la la, la la la, la la la. Let is snow; let it snow, let it snow! Blessings to you, Laura…

  5. Gorgeous photos, Laura. Isn’t it wonderful how a fresh snowfall makes everything into a tranquil symphony of beauty? Looks like you got about the same pile of snow as we did here on the north mountain. I was ready for snow, anyway.

    • Thanks Jodi, although my amateur efforts at photography are nothing compared to yours.

      I kind of think I was ready for snow, too. Not to mention we really do need it to help protect next years plants.

  6. What gorgeous photos, Laura! I love the quotations about nature’s music, and your reference to winter’s harmonious music, especially since I heard on the news this morning that music releases dopamine from the brain and makes us feel happier. Being snowed in isn’t usually anyone’s idea of fun and yet an enforced snow day can be a luxury that does indeed make us feel good. :)

    • Thanks Carol! Likely the best thing to do when snowed in is to just relax and find something enjoyable to do like listening to music, unless you’re someone who’s inclined to read or write like us.

  7. Those are some beautiful pictures! We’ve been snowed in for a week. I live in the south. We’d considered moving to Virginia last year; I have closed that topic now. I grew up in Florida, so I’ve never experienced this. Can you tell I have cabin fever? LOL

    • Snowed in for a week! Eek! I’m sure a lot of people would have cabin fever about now. I hope you find something to ease the tension and hopefully you’ll get dug out from beneath all the snow soon.

  8. Fabulous photos – there is silent eariness to them.

    Reply
    • Winter photos do have that eeriness to them, the start contrast of white mingled with the shades of gray and black. Glad you liked the photos, Tracy!

  9. beautiful post, Laura. I’m finding this year I am enjoying the winter the most I have in years. :)

    • Thanks Jennifer! It makes sense for us to try and enjoy each season as it comes along, otherwise we’re simply waiting for time to pass and time is such a precious thing. Best to enjoy the journey while we can!

    Hi there…loved you quotes and photos…where is that old building located ?

    • Thanks Ericka! Welcome to my blog and thanks for leaving a comment.

      The pictures were all taken on our property here in East Dalhousie. The building is actually the back side of our barn. Amazing how the camera gives us a different perspective.

  11. I love the photos. There’s nothing like the inspiration of the beauty of nature.

    • Thank for visiting and for your comment. I receive much of my inspiration from nature I think perhaps it has a lot to do with living in the country.
