November Melt

November Melt

We had cold.
Now it's warm.
Later it will get cold again.
The sun beat down mercilessly on this icicle Monday afternoon causing it to lose integrity and melt into the frozen water underneath. The steady drips wore a hole in the ice.
I thought it was interesting. It shows we must proceed as Nature dictates and hope for the best.
When external forces win, then we can only bow and let them ride over us until we can regain our position.
Lessons are everywhere, even in an icicle.

Lovely photo.

(Must find coffee with which to paint words onto my brain, 'cause right now I got nothin')

Sun and water will find their way, no matter how we try to stop them. You are right that all we can do is gracefully acquiesce.

So true. We're learning that November is perhaps a bit too late to leave the boat in the (now hard) water.
