Welcome to Monday WRites # 334
You've heard about the Monday Blues ❧✿❧well this is  Monday WRites  (musing on the definition here of rite, as any customary observance for eg the rite of afternoon tea). 
Goodbye dear January.

A Winter Vacation Remembered

She calls me out; my sister,  to "see something." Not knowing what, i comply. The door is slightly opened enough for a cold draft to swing its way in. 

The scene before me is a snow globe. No,  not a snow globe; but all the little snow globes in the world, gathered together to perform a whirling dance.

Wow! What a sight. Awesome is the correct and very apt word for this first time spectacle to a warm blooded woman, from a hot sunny Caribbean island. 

The only whiriligig i know is leaves dancing in a burst of enthusiastic breezes. Leaves of all shapes colours both green yellow and brown. And its not an autumn scene. Its an ordinary Caribbean Dry season happening. 

So there i am with Ohhs eluding my throat escaping my lips. My eyes opened wide in wonder.

first time seeing snow -
a handful of flakes caught
a surreal feeling
