......the week-end brought a hugh snow storm and on Monday, a deep freeze, that caused all but the hardiest toad to go into hibernation.
No, there are no toads under the piles of snow. You are in the upstairs art studio looking west towards the setting sun.
Here you have to use your imagination and dream of the future. You are looking out of the south window in the office. You are looking out onto the sidewalk and street. The daffodils and tulips are blooming and the spring peepers are croaking along with the toads.
Now you are on the third floor of the Rapunzel Tower (The photographer was just barely brave enough to poke her head above the floor to take a photo to the east.) It is 5:00 pm on Sunday, December 12th 2010.
