Questioning the Shape of Snow

So, here we are in late March, getting snowed in again.
In like a lion—out like a...yeti?

Appropriate for this weather, my father-in-law emailed my husband this TwistedSifter article about microscopic snowflake images today.

Ummm...

I just can't even.
Can't.

Perspective, for sure.
All in a simple (?!?) snowflake.

As I've mentioned before, people who know me well will tell you that I ask a lot of questions.

Reading this article and seeing these astounding images reminds me that, sometimes, asking questions is the best way to uncover the rawest beauty.

Sometimes, taking the time and initiative to really look closer will expose the depth and intricacy that will change the way we view someTHING or someONE forever.

Because if we never ask, how can we ever expect to know?
And there's just so much to learn...

What a trip, huh?

Ask some questions today, and see if you can't get a little closer to observing the startling beauty that's hiding right beneath the surface.

I hope you learn something amazing.

Have the most wonderful week, friends!
