Aurora Borealis on the Behance Network 300x200 Heart warming Winter quotes and photos“In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer”  Albert Camus

I love the first snowfall of the year; with the arrival of winter I feel close to home. We have our Christmas rituals and family dinners. And as I reflect, I smile at the nostalgia of my life.

I have lived in three different cities since leaving home long ago, but in truth – home will always be where my mother lives. I remember her looking out the window of our old house and asking me if I thought it was going to be a white Christmas. And I can’t help but somehow feel that when the snow finally fell – those words made it magical.

That old house my father rebuilt was a castle.  I remember how much cool stuff my parents had stashed everywhere. The basement was a maze filled with antiques and treasure boxes of new things.  So many important memories live on that street. When my mother finally sold it, I walk around for one last time and cried my eyes out.  I realized that until I had my own family, nothing would ever feel that safe again.

Heart warming Winter quotes and photos is my 5th photo Blog collection.  Each photo links directly to the original source.

Now seems a perfect part;
Yet each one holds summer’s secret
Deep down within its heart.

Every winter,
When the great sun has turned his face away,
The earth goes down into a vale of grief,
And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables,
Leaving her wedding-garlands to decay -
Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses.
~Charles Kingsley
