Maria_Elyse 's thoughts:

The lapse of time between the lake’s freezing and the ground’s blanket of snow falling when there are just thin sheets of snow in patches along the sand is always so strange to me. The lake is obviously frozen in winter’s clutches yet its sands are not yet hidden…when the lake is white and the sand is still visible it reminds me of human memory. Parts of things we remember will start to freeze, and bits and pieces of memory will become hidden. It bothers me that, no matter what, I won’t ever be able to remember all the things I so want to. I search through my mind like a dresser of drawers, but some little memories are misplaced and gone. Almost every single day I make a mental note to remember something…a feeling, a moment, someone’s gesture or facial expression. I almost always forget. I want to remember everything. Large things and small things. Lakes and grains of sand.

I love the title, and the outfit is wonderful. I like thatyou have a setting - not only an outfit picture. The red hat makes the whole outfit, and I really love all of your looks now that I've spent some time browsing through them. Really jealous of those mittens!! -Gabrielle

wow, the sand and the snow are beautiful! And your outfit is lovely! So sad about the lost memories though, but the stuff you do remember is the stuff worth remembering and the little things you forget their just little things. Live in the moment and let the past be the past!
