My walks at dusk with Stella are becoming sacred time. The sky at dusk today looked the sky in this photo. Along our route is a large bank parking lot with a bit of green area. She loves to stop there & sniff around. I indulge her because this lot was once my elementary school & the school of so many who grew up in this small town. Today, because of nature of the late day, winter sky light, I had a memory of building an igloo in the snow covered school yard.

I remember wanting to freeze that moment in time and I held onto it tightly. I savored that moment at an age where “savoring moments” doesn’t typically occur to a child. Regardless, this all came back to me during our walk this evening. It came to me like a gift.winter_sunset_sky_snow_tree_color_nature_hd-wallpaper-1310863
