My Favorite Time For Walkin'

I am naturally a winter person.  I love everything about it, especially walking in it.  There is nothing that makes me feel more like a kid, more quickly, than looking out the window in the morning to see the ground covered with freshly fallen snow.  To walk in it though, I love to walk in the snow at night.  I can close my eyes right now and picture it perfectly.  Large, heavy snowflakes falling before the backdrop of a dark sky.  I especially enjoy it when the ground is already fairly well covered so that all the surrounding noise is dampened between the snow falling and the snow already lying.  With the wind relatively calm and the air feeling slightly warmer, I could walk for miles.

And that is all I could think about this morning upon awakening to see the snow falling outside my bedroom window.  My thought on walking for the day.
