It's a snowy Monday in this part of the world. I found today, since I was out there twice involved in the task, shoveling is a good time for reflection. Thoughts seem to arrange themselves better when your body is busy exerting itself elsewhere! Crisp, cool air helps to clear the mind, and the rhythmic motion seems to bring calm. Except of course, when your sweet little three-year old is "helping", which is, in fact, at cross purposes, dumping snow back upon the cleared areas.
