On a recent frosty morning I went to move my car to provide better access to the house for the truck bringing our new furnace, yeah! I was rewarded by finding this intricate design on the windshield.

Thirteen years of exposure to Cape Cod's strong winds and sandy environment have left my Subaru's windshield finely "pitted", leading to lots of localized glare when driving into the sun. I suspect this surface texture facilitated the formation of these icy patterns.

As opposed to the yellow ribbon, this image seems utterly UNREAL. A figment of memory.

A contrast in opposites: delicate/fierce, gentle/harsh

Congrats on the ribbon!

WTG sweetie! At least there's SOME benefit to be had out of this unseasonably bitter spring we are experiencing :-)

Congratulations on the ribbon. This was my top pick. I think I'll go out and sandpaper my windscreen before the frosts set in.

A somptuous cape for a dowager countess of the North. Fascinating
