I have always been fascinated with snowflakes. Even on the coldest of winter days (like today) when I see the snowflakes coming down I have to stop and watch. When I was a little girl I would carry a magnifier in my coat pocket so that when I saw a snowflake that I thought was cool I could look at it more closely. Each one alone is so beautiful, floating down to earth. Sometimes gently and sometimes with gusto each snowflake falls at a different speed and chooses a different course to its final destiny. I think I will put a magnifier in my coat pocket again.
