It's been said that "revelation is Encounter's purest form."
That's what I thought when I saw poison ivy vines draped with snow as they swirled up this tree. The same thing can be there for years.... so what does it take for us to gain a new viewpoint, to see that which we could not see before? If we pretend that snow represents purity, as in a clean slate, then it's presence on the landscape merely covers all items excepting the singular elements. The details of form and foliage, mental & visual clutter seamlessly blend into one crystalline state. When the world goes white this way, the One form- one Color is pure white, the color of light - which contains all colors. The paradox is: the One contains the All, just as the singular elements form the One.
