I have been in Aspen, CO for the past week, enjoying a vacation while my husband attends a conference.
This morning I took a hike along the Rio Grande — which runs right behind our hotel and through town.
All was silent in the falling snow except for the sound of rushing water. So peaceful and beautiful. Everything is monochromatic in the winter here — shades rather than vivid colors. The softness is lovely and calming.
I hope I am able to keep some of that stillness in my heart when I return home, and remember the quiet in the middle of chaos.
