Yay! It's Snowing!!
Sitting in my office (which is tucked into a corner of my bedroom...) I can see the snow swirling around outside. This is the second snow of the year, and the sight makes me feel so happy and full of joy at nature's beauty!
I know there are some people who will be moaning and groaning, but if it's gonna be cold, then I'd rather there be snow on the ground than not.
And for those of you who might be interested in what my workspace looks like, here it is (when it's clean, which isn't too often...)
As you can see from the close up, I now have three Chinese paintings on the wall:
The first I got in XiAn during my second trip to China, when I stayed there for a year. The second two I got at an artshowing in Beijing when I returned in 2002. My two favorite groups of painters are the impressionists (especially Renior, Monet, and Cassat) and the landscape style of Chinese painting.
