Soft on Saturday - Feb 23-2007

Soft Alarm here: Heat up in the Cold and Cool down in the Heat.

Snow is a Soft state of Water. Clouds and Fog (low clouds in fact) are softer. But in that condition you can't jump into it and feel the softness as you do when jumping into soft snow. With other words, Snow is expanded frozen Water. Like Airy Powder. But Snow can be packed as well. But normally Soft shaped.

Snow can reflect the most Soft meaningful valeurs of colours. And you can make white angels, snowlamps and drawings that can soften the hardest shadow and heart. During dark Winternights, what does make your mind soften up but the soft light from snow. And a Christmas Card with Pinebranches stacked of snow: Beauty, melancolique, harmony, tranquillity. Softens my heart. Turns me into the full pleasure of Nature. And put me into real Christmas Mood. A Time to give and forgive. Without to be softhearted, but softminded. And when the Sun rises higher and higher the Soft Snow changes its forma and shapes and predict new life: Spring.

Have you read the book? Do you need a Soft Loan? Do you like Fruit de Mers? What about Music? Afraid of falling? And last but not least, you could not view this without Computer Software. Free Open Source Software? New Pro based on Open Source Software?

A tribute to soft:
Soft Whispers, by Seashell

I long to feel the warmth of your skin,
Your hand, reaching for mine.
I get lost in the tenderness of your touch.
Your caress ignites my senses, and softly whispers,
"I love you."

I long to see the glow in your eyes,
Your stare, connecting with mine.
I get lost in the boundless depths of your soul.
Your gaze frees my spirit, and softly whispers,
"I love you."

I long to taste the sweetness of your kiss,
your lips, gently brushing mine.
I get lost in the intensity of your emotions.
Your passion captures my heart, and softly whispers,
"I love you."

Have a Soft Life (not naïv) . Start (s)now:))

Goodness, that snow looks awfully deep! And the soft snow is the easiest to fall through! Mine's up!

Welcome to the hunt.
I thought about snow for the topic soft, however here at the beach, we have no snow, we have not had snow and are not likely to have snow... once every five years or so and that's all. I wish we had snow.
Great picture for the theme.

haven't seen snow in my entire lifetime and from the looks of it in movies and photos it surely looks soft.

Lovely post! I might add something about snow.

Snow is like a magical carpet. It hides everything that is ugly and make everything looks beautiful!

We did have some (very unexpected) snow this year. I like it but for a short time. We're not really used to it in this country so we don't cope well - raods closed etc.

it looks so inviting to eat actually! I know a few people who would dive into it!

You are just too funny about this sofa thing, but if you are here, you are definitely invited to sit in it..

I just hope we can get tickets to go to an event for the olympics!

I'm curious to know your surroundings while the snow is still around... Are they on flickr. ;-) (wink wink)

The second paragraph captured the magic of winter for me... it brought back so many wonderful memories; living in Sweden, making snow angels, snow lanterns... the branches of the pine trees heavy with snow. The beauty and tranquillity... Lovely.

And then the promise of spring, of the melting snow creating little brooks everywhere, exposing gravel that crunches promisingly under your feet...

I feel all melancholy now... but it's a nice melancholy... it's soft :)
