It’s been a very snowy week here for Christmas and today for the last day of 2012, the sun decided to grace us with her presence.  About 4 in the afternoon, the whole garden sparkled with the sunlight on ice and snow.  One of the bushes is encapsulated in ice since it sits directly beneath the dripping icicles hanging from our roof line.  I had family watching  while I was creating the mandalas and this image is the one that continually drew responses of awe at the patterns that were being revealed.

Happy New Year!  May you have the gift of truly seeing the wonder and awe that surrounds you each day in this new year.
