Top Community Engagers December 2020

Any poetry enthusiasts among us? I hope so! I decided to quote one of my favorite poets tonight 🙂


While I was reviewing Top Contributors for December, I was looking out my New England window at the tall pines armored by interlocking, white, deep frozen water molecules.  A thought came to me about how perfectly each snowflake (all unique and different) came together to make a beautiful shield for the branches of these fine trees against the cold. Have you ever had a chance to look at the exquisite geometry of a snowflake?  This  article  Classifying the geometry of snowflakes highlights their beauty and diversity"   shares the story of simple hexagons and star-shaped dendrites that bring some grief but a whole lot of enjoyment! 






Congratulations to all our December Top Engagers!

Here  are also a few photos of my woods on this "snowy" evening!  Enjoy!


Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening



Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow. 


My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   


He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   


The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.

.... are you implying that we are all a bunch of flakes, each one a little different than the other?     🙂

I will let everyone decide if they want to be a "flake" or not.
