Water Walking

Rich: Winter lets us see water in all its forms, sometimes all in the span of a day. There it is, everywhere, beautifully presented. Sometimes it flows, like the water in the west branch of the DuPage River.

That's the kind of water you can play in, if you're of such a mind as Daisy was today.

Many times, it's disguised as snow.

When you walk in this snow water, people are going to know where you've been.

And in the mornings, it comes as a mist, like yesterday when a dreary fog enveloped the trees in the distance.

Water doesn't do straight lines; it moves in curves and waves.

YakTrax come in handy when the going gets icy.


  1. Ooooh, that water--Cabana would be right in there with Daisy! I love those YakTrax--what a fabulous invention!
