Feeling like Einstein
Have you ever found something that was right in front of you but you had absolutely no idea it was even there until right after you discovered it? I just had this wondrous experience. I was looking out my window thinking I'd take some pictures of the snow at night-just to see how they'd come out. When I looked at them I was amazed to see the flash had illuminated the sleet as it was falling. What you see in these photographs were not seen by the naked eye. If I had not thought of doing this I would have missed out on everything you see here. The extra funny thing is I actually had a thought that something mystical would happen. You can't see Padre Pia from this photo below, but the little golden arch that you can see is actually a small shrine my neighbor has of the Saint Padre Pia. It is a statue of the saint standing inside of a glass house that is lit up with a string of Christmas lights. When I realized Padre would be in the photo I thought maybe he would send me a sign. If you click on this photo it will get larger & you can see what my son thinks are faces inside the sleet, quite possibly snow fairies sent by Padre himself.
