Winter as Seen Through a Window by Barbara Dexter
As I sit here reviewing a chapter on forensic tool markings, I take a moment to focus and reflect on my day. I look out the library window. Behold there is a massive tree which I believe to be a sycamore. It is dark and beautifully contrasted with the cloud covered sky. It is a true winter scene that reminds me of the beauty that surrounds me even in the dark days of winter.
Soon spring will come and there will be shades of green leaves covering the branches. Gone will be the minute detail of the branches.
Storm Clouds This Morning by Barbara Dexter
I put the recycling out through the garage this morning and noticed a large patch of ice just outside the garage door. Well I placed the paper in it’s usual place not thinking of the person that has to pick out up, and closed the door. I had just set two large bags of paper on top of the ice. I thought to myself, I don’t want to walk over the ice, let me go out the front door to get my car started besides those guys have big, heavy, trucks surely they have traction.
The view up in the sky was spectacular as I laid there for a moment to catch my breath. Yes, karma had struck me for putting the paper out on the ice. But when it did, I sure got a nice photo of the storm clouds.
