There's Nothing More Magical Than Snow in Sedona

Ray Bradbury once wrote a short story entitled, “All Summer in a Day.” In it, a girl lives on Venus. It rains every day there, but one day, a freak weather pattern offers a chance to see the sun, an opportunity that arrives only every several years. Then, it’s back to drab and dreary. 

In the tale, the protagonist’s classmates lock her in a closet when the sun appears, stealing her one chance to experience warmth and heat. 

Folks who follow my other blog know that I have a rare neurological condition that sometimes quite literally knocks me on my butt. As luck would have it, I got hit with a monster attack on the two magical days this high-desert town gets to experience that fourth season known as winter. 

I might have shed a tear or two as I reflected on that Bradbury tale. You see, a heavy sticking snowfall only happens around these parts every few years, too. It’s as rare as sunshine on Venus.

Then, with the opening bars of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” stuck on replay in my head, I said “forget you” to my aching body, zipped up my three layered sweatshirts and headed out to capture the magic that is snow in Sedona. The result is below. Please feel free to steal any of the images in this post, although I’d appreciate a link back if you do. My ultimate (and admittedly crazy) dream is to build a sustainable company that can someday help other disabled folks like me enjoy meaningful work, and it means a lot. Thanks! <3 

With no further ado, please enjoy the magic that is snowy Sedona!
