Reality vs The Image

Dig this! Only yesterday the snow surprised us when we woke up, then continued its gentle descent from the skies. I usually crack open my front door to watch the swirling flakes and smell the snowy skies. Then I mosey over to my computer and check the Times. They had a photo essay on snowiness in the Bklyn Botanical Gardens.

Here I was, sitting at my dining room computer, watching images of the snow on a flat nondimensional screen while the REAL THING was right outside my window just about the most glorious sight you can imagine.

  1. I don't know why, Ruth, but my recent comments have not shown up on your blog.

    Anyway, I praised your cruise ship poem.
