When It Snows Ain't it Thrillin'

I think it's a shame that many people take snow for granted. When it snows people on the street tuck into their coats and rush from place to place without so much as a glance at the lovely phenomenom surrounding them.

Snow is my favorite sort of weather. Especially perfect snow, like what's falling on Salt Lake right now. The flakes are big and soft, there's no wind and it's just like the entire sky is falling down little by little. It's a perfect scene of serenity and simplicity. There is nothing more beautiful than a snow storm and the silence that comes with it.

Next time you are out rushing around in a snow storm, do me a favor; stop and take it all in for a moment. Just pause and appreciate the beauty around you. Breathe in the zen qualities of snowfall before running off to the warmth of somewhere else.

Insert a slew of "live in the moment" saws* here.

*saw: (n) a sententious saying; maxim; proverb: He could muster an old saw for every occasion.

Shhhh. Don't tell anyone but I miss the snow... I can see just what you're talking about and it makes me a little bit home sick for Salt Lake... Shhhhh.

P.S. the Chapata for this would make an awesome bond arch enemy... It sounds like a stereo type of an Italian name.

Ha Ha Ha you miss here! I laugh at you. I guess I didn't have to tell you that I laughed because of the ha's.

P.S. I have no idea what your captcha says but I'm all or arch villians. And may I just say that current Bond is the sexiest one since Sean Connery.
