Once again, an eloquent, beautiful post. I love your writing, Amy. Can't wait to see a collection of your essays in print. It's gotta happen some day!

Beautifully written!!! I can just close my eyes and see them.


Lovely post. My dad was an artist (tho not by profession) and it's in our blood too, so I understand when you talk about noticing the shape and the color and the design, etc. of icicles. I sometimes try to photograph them but don't have a lot of luck (yet). Kendell helped my roommate, Ruth put up icicle lights on our house just before Christmas (when I was gone on vacation). Knowing now that he hates to do it makes me feel even more gratitude to him for his kind service. It really meant a lot to Ruth!


Lovely icicles. We don't see them here much in the temperate Pacific Northwest, but I did see something that had me hunched down on the rare frozen ground last week. These strange icicle-shaped creatures were rising up out of the dirt. Thin, short spiky fellows who clustered together and shattered when I clutched at them. I headed to Google to figure out this mystery. Thank you Key Word knowledge and Images. They were called Ice Needles. Very cool indeed!
