"no two are the same"
Is what you always hear.

A while ago a friend had some pictures on her blog
this is one of them.

I have never seen anything quite like it!
They are beautiful!!
I thought that it just might be that
Denver just has prettier snow than here.

Well it has been
the past couple of day's and I have had
the opportunity of going out and shoveling.
Yesterday when I was almost finished
you guessed it~it started to fluff again.
And this is what I noticed...

I think 100 of them would have fit on a penny...
side by side.
They were so tiny.

I thought it was interesting
that added up it looked like this...

The Business of Children Delivered By: Lloyd D. Newell
Have you ever watched a young child at play?
But is it really play?
What we call play can be serious business to a child.
Watch a child listening to the dial tone on a telephone
or touching the prickly ends of a fir tree or catching snowflakes in gloved hands.
These are simple things that we, as adults, take for granted.
But, to the child, the sound, the feel, the sight is pure delight.

We can dismiss the whole thing,
saying that to the child these things are new—
while we’ve heard the dial tone more times than we’ve wanted to,
we’ve encountered pricklier things like cacti,
and snowflakes melt so fast.
Why bother?
But is it really the newness that captures a child’s delight?
Or does the delight come because the child is paying attention?

Unfortunately, we may see something so often that we no longer see it at all. Yet, our connections with the people and things around us come by paying attention—close attention.

Smile and Remember;
We're fools whether we dance or not. So we might as well dance.
