There is something so magical about snow to the uninitiated.  Even adults (ME, last winter) are in awe of snow's beauty and wonder when it is encountered for the first time.
It's been soooooooo cold!!!! Snowed in all week.   Here's looking down our street at sunset. :-) See other beautiful views at Skywatch  Jacob did not know what to think of the snow!

I'll be back to look at this more closely but for now just have to say that the statue in your header picture is spectacularly creepy.  Great shot.

I quite randomly found him while blogging.  I commented and we connected on Google +.  He has a truly amazing cemetery site.  I don't ever expect to get to London, England again so this is a true vicarious experience for me.

+Steven Keller I have not thought of it in that way.  If fact, had not really thought about the how of her appearance.  Thinking of that, I reflect on the how of the appearance, especially, of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  You have made a very good point and opened my eyes a bit more.

Interesting.  The area is like a Garden of Eden.  Flora and fauna abundant, humans next to nil.  With poachers still invading, I'd say that's just about right.

I agree, David.  What a remarkable story and all the better because he didn't get away with it.  Just imagine how successful his life might have been had he put all the energy to work in a positive way.  Of course, that holds true for all of us today as well.

Well, predictably, Poland was all about churches and the Holy Family.  Everything else was secular.  Sad.

Found you as I was  browsing.  Very much enjoyed it and sent it to my husband who has a fondness for all things Victorian.  Merry Christmas.

Introduction
I know what is important to me. I know all the roads not taken and how these roads have played out in my real life. The end results are often so different from my dreams, that I've finally come to the understanding that dreams are just starting points after all.
Bragging rights
2.) Back from mission and travels into 19C history. Feel very changed. My blog will show some of this change. 1.) Survived the first few years of retirement. Now I'm hitting the road to pursue a mission. Gone in January 2014. Back in May, sometime. Occasional updates from the road throughout.
