Yesterday the temperature took a dive. The dry crackling air rushed by as I zipped back from Nishi Kasai to my home in Minami Kasai. It was cold enough that the weather forecast was calling for snow in the early am hours.
I was following a small creek that runs behind some houses where I came to an amazing aloe bush. It was near freezing weather and this aloe was blooming with some bright red blossoms. The aloe was so massive that is snake like branches were hovering only centimeters above the waterline.
Just a little nudge that even when I may be freezing and have wrapped my body from head to toe in winter clothing there is still life that manages to bloom. There are colors that pop forth out of the gray.
