Baubles in the Snow

Baubles in Snow © 2007

This is south central Wisconsin. We are windy, foggy, snowy. Today relatives are arriving at my front door from New York City, San Francisco, and Chicago. Travel is iffy. Christmas is iffy. The presents are under the tree, the food is planned, the cookies are made, the beds are made, and the wine has been purchased for out 1st Annual Wine Tasting Christmas Eve Party.

Now we’ll see if the most important part of Christmas, our loved ones, arrive safely.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. the tree looks nice 🙂

  2. It looks like you’ll have a much whiter Christmas than we will here in Finland. Lucky you.:)

    Thanks for the comment, btw.

  3. so idyllic

  4. That photo looks like home to me! I live in western Illinois, in the Quad Cities and it’s very cold and snowy here too.

    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and that your family all arrive safely!

  5. Beautiful Barbara – this reminds me of my home from long ago, and the memories are delicious. Thank you for sharing this photo, and I hope your family has all arrived safe and sound.

  6. Thanks for all the visits and comments. This was the epitomy of Christmas this year – baubly and snowy.
