Fresh Perspective - Missoula, Montana

"The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only." - Joseph Wood Krutch (1893-1970)

Being a lover of little things, I was delighted to spy the pictured miniature winter forest - in reality, a stand of mid-calf height weeds transformed by fresh snowfall a few weeks back. As a sometime gardener, I typically wouldn't be pleased about weeds, especially en masse. But a fresh perspective will often reach beyond our prejudices. (Not a bad thought for pondering on the bonus day of a leap year.)

See how the Sri Lanka team has been handing out new views at .
