The Twilight of Christmas

Tish took this picture just before she took down the tree. The wistful reflection of the lights in the window at snowy dusk illustrate perfectly the transition from the jaunty Christmas season into the arrival of deep winter - a time to hunker down to endure the short blustery days and crisp hearthbound nights. Here in northern New England we won't really come out of hibernation until the beginning of May when the jaggedy ski slopes of snow finally melt off the top of Mount Sunapee, just to the left of this shot.
