Find the Zen........

Find the Zen........

Thursday, February 9, 2012

Once in a while you get shown the light In the strangest of places if you look at it right.

my face blessed by beautiful Colorado sunshine, trusty shovel in hand I head out to shovel last nights offering of snow, only an inch at best but out I go any way. do I have to? we already know the answer to that one.
carving the snow into imaginary landscapes that only I can see, a feeling comes over me.

Sometimes I think of water colors when I am "Ninjapimpin" the driveway. in the same way water can change a watercolor landscape, the sun keeps mutating anything I create so fast it can only be " Enjoyed in the now".
Broad brush strokes of my shovel reveals ever changing snow shapes, simple geometric designs at first but getting more interesting.
 with every fresh snow comes the OPPORTUNITY to shovel again.
It may seem odd to most

and OCD to the rest
to sculpt a hundred feet of  drive way snow.
but as for me
shoveling fluffy snow
( after the snow blower does all the hard work)
in this wonderful sunshine
and creating a snowy wonderland
seems a good why to spend a bit of time.

Ahhhh the zen of shoveling the drive way

                                                          and it's cheaper then the gym. :)
