As cliche as it may be, as the snow continues to drift outside our windows my mind cannot help but wander to scenes such as this. I suppose it's the constant bundling of materials, the never ending blowing of dry air from the heat, the stiffening of muscles anytime we step into the outside world. I cannot help but to be pushed to taking mental vacations where I am free , floating in the Dead Sea and being cleansed. Ironically enough the color palette of this scene is very similar to the same hues we are currently experiencing here. Right now we are amidst the deepest whites, tans, and blues, but are they are most definitely of a different spirit.
