"Brown and gray,
brown and gray,
brown and gray all the live long day."
A small quote from me as to what colors fill my day. They are brown and gray, with a touch of blue in the sky, sometimes....
On occasion a puffy cloud floats by or maybe I hear a small bird chirp, but otherwise these winter days are quiet. If a snowflake falls from the sky, the quiet becomes overwhelming. It creates a perfect peace in nature, that I don't sense at any other time of the year.
"Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom."
