Winter has come!


Winter has come, and it is indeed glorious!


Glorious? But we are all snowed in! There’s ice on the streets, and it’s so cold out!


Yes, that may be true. And I truly sympathize with those that must go out and drive on hazardous roads. But there is so much more to winter. Winter is a time, traditionally, for us to reflect upon ourselves, to cozy up into our snug places, with our family around us, and our memories percolating into fermented delight.  It is a time to finish craft projects, do indoor repairs, and play board games.


Have you spent time with your family this winter? Have you enjoyed your down time? I hope you have. Each winter is a treasure.


And have you looked outside into the wondrous beauty of the white world?  The wind blows and tiny snowflakes sparkle in the sun. Harsh contour shadows caress the crystal-clad hills in amorphous fantasy designs. The tracks of woodland creatures can be seen exploring this winter wonderland.


Most of us have little time to enjoy the beauty and wonder of our lives. Take some time, savor the wonder that has been created all around us. Do not waste the rosy dawn.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:
