time in dreams is frozen

Time in dreams is frozen. You can never get away from where you've been.
— Margaret Atwood (The Blind Assassin)


This shot was taken yesterday while I was home for a snow day. Luckily, I headed out on Wednesday well in enough time to miss the horrible traffic jams around the Baltimore beltway. The snow fall overnight made this place look like a winter wonderland for about half the day, and then, thankfully, it started to melt.

The shape of this piece of ice reminded me of the jewel on a tear drop necklace or earring - with the bottom portion so perfectly shaped.

With regard to this quote, I have started and never finished The Blind Assassin about three times. I liked the book and plan to finish it at some point - I think I am about 3/4 the way through. Why can we finish some books in a night and others take us years?
