A friend shared a silly picture of an upside down snowman and I went for it. There's no snow here....yet, but that didn't stop my mind from imagining what could happen. Take one reverse snowman and add some onlookers. Oh dear. What will the neighbors think?
Remember the cartoon strip 'Calvin and Hobbes'? Oh those bizarre scenes little Calvin cooked up. Were you ever tempted to recreate one of those? The next 'silly snowman' I painted is reclining in the snow. Too much eggnog? Too much heavy snow and your back says enough - and there is a sleeping - or just chillin' snowman.
Time spent with children this week (my pageant performers rocked !) was healing. A little infant sibling dressed as Santa had the spirit. Toddlers surrounding me as I motioned out cues in the front row were transfixed by the action. Birthday party with a fairy theme helped with it's own magic. May you find time for a bit of whimsy. There is still joy to be found. If you get enough snow, please make the best of it. Build something wild and hilarious with a child (or your inner child) and share. And until there is real snow - I'll imagine more happy possibilities.
